Christmas FM is the radio station spreading that festive cheer throughout December, but the station has just announced the unbelievable results of their fundraising efforts for 2018.

An unbelievable €404,551 was raised for their chosen charity of 2018, Temple Street Children’s University Hospital.

This will have massive repercussions for the hospital, the funds will go towards purchasing new state-of-the-art lifesaving equipment such as incubators and ventilators.

These machines allow the gift of life to be given to over 1,000 critically ill babies and children in Temple Street.
