On Saturday April 1st, colleagues from five Tesco stores across North Dublin, Meath and Louth are taking to the dance floor at the City North Hotel to raise funds for Temple Street Children’s University Hospital. The couples and groups representing the five Tesco stores will be participating in ‘Strictly Tesco Dancing’ to win the coveted glitter ball and be crowned the best dancers. There will of course be an element of local rivalry as the couples and groups are representing the Balbriggan, Drogheda, Drogheda Extra, Rush and Navan Tesco stores.
The event aims to raise E15,000 to support the little heroes of Temple Street, Tesco Ireland’s charity partner.
Lisa McEvoy, from Tesco said, “Temple Street has some of the best doctors and nurses in the world but it needs on-going fundraising support to ensure it continues to offer specialist facilities and lifesaving equipment.”
The winners will be decided by a panel of judges including Linda Martin, Christine Heffernan, Tesco Ireland and Brian Howard, Manager of Progressive Credit Union. The audience will also play a key role in deciding the winner, as the judge’s panel will count for half the points and audience members will be able to vote on the night which will make up the other half of the overall marks.
