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.
