Variety Ireland said” We as a volunteer run children’s charity are delighted to team up with John, Angela and the incredible Temple Street Hospital team this year and donate these wonderful hand-made Irish toys to ensure that sick children will have someone to hold and talk to while lying in their beds this Christmas.”
