Temple Street Children's Hospital are granting 3-day camping passes to Electric Picnic to the first 100 people to raise or donate €500.

Temple Street Children's Hospital were gifted 100 free tickets by Electric Picnic organisers to use as fundraising incentives.

The hospital, which needs to raise €50,000, set hopeful attendees the task of raising €500 for a ticket. The first 100 people to achieve this feat secure a ticket for the sold-out festival, and 100 per cent of the money goes to the Temple Street.

Forty 3-day camping passes are still available, with €30,000 has raised for the hospital so far.

The CEO of Temple Street Fundraising said, "“We were really touched when Electric Picnic partnered with our hospital on this fantastic fundraising initiative. To put it into perspective – these 100 tickets will help us to raise €50,000 for our hospital. That’s a new dialysis machine or an incubator for a critically ill child."

"On behalf of our patients I would like to sincerely thank... amazing supporters (at Electric Picnic)."
