Tayto gives €1 from sales to LauraLynn

No Repro Free: Friday 4th November 2016. The Tayto Pop Up Shop is on the move once more and this time it's going festive! This Christmas Mr. Tayto is delighted to announce that he is opening the doors to his very own Tayto Crispmas Workshop in the iconic Arnotts Christmas Windows. The Pop Up Crispmas Workshop will be located in the Arnotts Christmas windows on Henry Street and Arnotts Festive Flavours Market in the Lower Basement. The window design has been inspired by Santa’s workshop in the North Pole and has been custom furnished and decorated to Mr. Tayto’s high standard. The window will have the much loved and original, Tayto Crispmas Sandwich, in 4 different Tayto-tastic flavours; The Cheese and Onion Crispmas Classic, The Salt and Vinegar Santa Sambo, The Smokey Bacon Bells Buttie and the Prawn Cocktail Tinsel Treat! Not only that but, exclusive Tayto Gift Boxes, bags and advent calendars are also available. Stuck for some great Crispmas present or Krisp Kindle ideas? Tayto’s Christmas Shop located downstairs in Arnotts, is a one-stop-shop for everything Tayto-related, including Crispmas Tayto merchandise, a personalised gift service to make that present extra special as well as gift vouchers and family passes to Ireland’s most- loved theme park and zoo – Tayto Park. The dapper man in the hat and the originator of the crisp sandwich will also be on hand to soak up some festive fun and will be making appearances every weekend on the run up to Christmas. All things #ArnottsTaytoCrispmas will be in Arnotts from the 5th of November until first week in January Photo shows : Orlaith Deegan from Meath, at Arnotts today. Jason Clarke Photography.

Tayto is donating €1 from every €3 sandwich sold in the Tayto Crispmas workshop to LauraLynn children’s hospice in the run-up to Christmas. The announcement is part of LauraLynn being the first dedicated Arnotts charity of the year. The department store hopes to €25,000 for the charity and supporting their various initiatives in the next year.

LauraLynn, which opened five years ago, provides hospice care to 170 children with life limiting conditions and their families. Through its facility in Leopardstown and the LauraLynn@HOME programme, it provides symptom management, music and play therapy, psychological support, family and sibling camps, short breaks and end of life care.

It costs the charity €5.2 million to keep the hospice open and €3.5m must be raised a year. The Tayto workshop is located in the Arnotts Christmas windows and in the lower basement market. The Crispmas sandwich comes in four flavours – cheese ‘n’ onion, salt ‘n’ vinegar, smoky bacon and prawn cocktail. Gift boxes, bags and advent calendars are also sold.
