Well-known fund-raiser Jimmy Mee is setting out tomorrow, Friday, April 20 on perhaps his most demanding charitable endeavour to date – a cycle from Dublin to Poland to garner financial support for the Temple Street Children’s Hospital.
Jimmy is hoping for a high level of public support for his arduous undertaking – the latest in a serious of physically demanding charity challenges he has taken on and completed to benefit a range of deserving causes in an odyssey that in recent years has taken him literally across the globe.
The beneficiary of his latest project will be the Temple Street Children’s University Hospital.
Temple Street is the first port of call for tens of thousands of children every year suffering from every kind of illness and injury imaginable. Their aim is to help sick children by making their stay in hospital less distressing for them and their families, by funding the purchase of medical equipment, developing new services, funding research and developing new treatment facilities.
However, the treatment provided at Temple Street is not limited to just the first-class medical care that is delivered there. For many children and their families Temple Street Children’s Hospital is a home away from home and the hospital treats the children of Temple Street as if they were their own.
“Temple Street children are special and that’s why the Hospital must continue to be as extraordinary as the children that come here,” a spokesperson for the hospital said this week.
