25 Mar 2019
The Irish Aviation Authority (IAA) today announced the Temple Street Foundation as its chosen charity partner for 2019. As part of this partnership, the IAA today donated €20,000 to the Hospital, which will specifically be used for the painting and decoration of a children’s ward at the hospital, and the purchase of two specialist ENT (Ear, Nose, Throat) examination chairs.

The IAA has also announced that it will make a donation from the proceeds of the IAA’s annual Aviation Gala Ball, the premier Irish aviation event of the year to the Temple Street Foundation, which will be held at the end of May this year. 

Additionally, a number of staff fundraising events will be organised across the IAA’s centres over the course of 2019 aimed at further fundraising for the Temple Street Foundation.  The first of these events will be the Great Irish Bake to be held on Friday 5th April.  

Peter Kearney, Chief Executive Officer of the Irish Aviation Authority said: “We are delighted to select the Temple Street Foundation as our charity partner for 2019. We are excited to be involved with such a worthwhile charity and to be able to contribute towards helping the patients and staff at Temple Street.  As a company with a nationwide footprint, the IAA recognises and values the importance of Temple Street to sick children and their parents across Ireland.

Emma Barrett, Head of Corporate Development with Temple Street Foundation said: “We are thrilled to be chosen by the Irish Aviation Authority as their charity partner for 2019 and are immensely grateful for their most generous donation. These funds will be put to work in our hospital where they are needed most – helping to bring hope and healing to sick children and their families. We would like to warmly thank the IAA for becoming part of the extraordinary circle of care that surrounds each sick child in Temple Street - we look forward to working together in the weeks and months ahead.”
