GREAT IRISH BAKE  

Get ready to bake, all to help raise vital funds for sick children in Ireland.

Children's Health Foundation's Great Irish Bake for sick children in CHI at Crumlin, Temple Street, Tallaght and Connolly, proudly supported by Gem, is one of Ireland’s biggest baking events and it couldn't be easier, or more fun, to get involved.

Your cakes, breads or buns will help provide equipment where it’s needed most across CHI hospitals and urgent care centres, helping doctors and nurses and frontline teams care for all of their little patients.

All we’re missing from this year’s event is the most important ingredient – you!

How Can I Get Involved?

Being a part of this important event is really simple!

Gather your friends and family and host your own bake event -  or even do it with your work colleagues or any little bakers and have a fun-filled day. Remember the Great Irish Bake is on Friday, 8th April but you can host your bake event on any date that suits you. Or even host more than one event to spread the joy and  raise some much ‘kneaded’ funds for CHI hospitals and urgent care centres and help  sick children just like Finn.

Register HERE for your Great Irish Bake Kit, jam-packed with everything you need to make sure your bake off is a huge success. 

Supporting the Great Irish Bake 

Funds raised from this year’s Great Irish Bake will go to work to fund vital and life-saving equipment like ultrasound devices, specialist scanners, pumps, theatre equipment, patient monitors and so much more in CHI at Crumlin, Temple Street, Tallaght and Connolly. This equipment provides a vital lifeline to so many critically-ill children, just like Finn.

Every year, around 350,000 children need the world-class care that only the teams in CHI hospitals and urgent care centres can can provide. 

Their vision is to give every sick child the very best chance. 

Head here to support The Great Irish Bake and help make a real difference today.
