Children can now send their Christmas lists to Santa without leaving hospital
EUROSPAR stores across Ireland set up Santa post boxes instore
Children spending Christmas in hospital no longer have to worry about sending their letters to Santa, thanks to EUROSPAR.
A special EUROSPAR post-box that delivers direct to the North Pole was set up in Temple Street Hospital, Dublin, today by the Irish owned supermarket group.
Now the brave boys and girls receiving treatment there will be able to send their Christmas lists to Santa without having to leave the hospital.
And EUROSPAR stores across Ireland have also set up Santa post boxes instore so children can write to Santa, and even get a letter back from the North Pole.
Suzanne Weldon, Marketing and Communications Director, BWG Foods (owners and operators of the EUROSPAR brand in Ireland) said, “We know how important it is to get your letter in to Santa on time. We have special Santa post-boxes set up in all local EUROSPAR supermarkets and they’re already very busy.
“We wanted to make sure that none of the boys and girls receiving treatment in Temple Street Hospital had to worry about how they would manage to post their letter, or whether it would be late, so we decided to set up a special post-box in the hospital, just for them.”
And they’ll even get a letter back from Santa Claus himself.
Suzanne Weldon said, “Everyone who sends a letter through a EUROSPAR post-box will get a reply back from Santa.”
Denise Fitzgerald, CEO of the Fundraising Office in Temple Street Children’s Hospital said, “As you can imagine no parent wants their precious child to be in hospital at Christmas, but sadly that’s the harsh reality we are all too familiar with in Temple Street. The hospital needs to be ready to treat sick and injured children at a moment’s notice regardless of the time, the week or the season.”
Denise continued, “We are so grateful to EUROSPAR for this heart-warming initiative. It will bring lots of smiles to our very brave little patient’s faces, making life better for them and their worried parents. The best gift ever this Christmas.”
