On Friday 14 April, 27 brave participants gathered at Dalkey Quarry to abseil for Temple Street Children’s Hospital Foundation. The 100ft abseil was organised by Shane O’Donovan to raise as much as possible for the hospital.
The brave team of abseilers raised €11,624.77, which was used to purchase state of the art equipment, fund research and put like back into the tired, old wards at Temple Street Children’s Hospital.
After assessing the drop below, some of the participants were hesitant to get started. However, bravery prevailed and everyone made it to the bottom of the drop eventually and there was a great sense of achievement among all team members at the end. The Temple Street Foundation raises funds to enable Temple Street Children’s University Hospital to continue to provide world class care to Ireland’s sickest children.
