Ireland AM have raised over €20,000 for Temple Street Children’s Hospital.
Karen Koster and Tommy Bowe hosted the final show of the year this morning, with their annual fundraiser taking place live from the Dublin-based hospital.
The popular presenters encouraged viewers to get involved throughout the show by texting ‘HOSPITAL’ to 50300 to donate €4.
With donations still coming through, Tommy revealed over €20k has been raised so far.
Last month, Ryan Tubridy launched the Toy Show Appeal, which raised €6.5 million for children’s charities across Ireland, which will be distributed in 2021.
The RTÉ presenter praised the generosity of the Irish people on his Radio One show on Monday, after a further €1.5million was raised for the Simon Community on Friday night’s Late Late Show.
“I don’t know where you get it from… I think Irish people have this innate sense of helping people who are just out of luck,” he said.
“But I did want to say thank you… To you, the Irish people, to those who call Ireland home, thank you. In the middle of the darkness, in the middle of the madness, to consistently and always come good is just remarkable.”
