The people of county Tipperary could raise up to €175,000 for Heaven Cent, a joint fundraising initiative between Our Lady’s Children’s Hospital Crumlin and Temple Street Children’s Hospital, which is coming to an end on Monday 5th July.

The two national children’s hospitals hope to raise €2 million by asking the people of Ireland to shake their bags out one last time, empty their pockets and rummage down the back of the sofa for loose coins.

Every bit of change can make a big difference to the lives of the sick children and their families. With 35 drop off points throughout Tipperary, it’s estimated this could contribute as much as €175,000 to the appeal.
