Why the boys & girls at Temple Street are dressing up early for Halloween

This is too cute.

Patients at Temple Street hospital got into the Halloween spirit a bit earlier than usual this year as they launched this year’s Trick or Treat for Temple Street. 

The adorable trio dressed up in their best costumes,  from dragons to Wonder Woman, as they shared what they’re looking forward to most this Halloween – and what the scariest part of the celebration is.

The Trick or Treat for Temple Street campaign is encouraging people across the country, whether it be at home, work, creche or school, to put together a spooktacular Halloween party and raise money for the children’s hospital.

The funds raised from this year’s Trick or Treat for Temple Street will go to upgrading and replacing a variety of specialised equipment, from cardiac monitors to incubators.

The hospital is calling on people throughout the country to host their own Trick or Treat for Temple Street party.
