Speaking at the hospital, Fyffes marketing manager, Emma Hunt-Duffy said: “the incredible, life-saving work that the doctors, nurses and staff at Temple Street and other hospitals and health treatment centres do to care for the health of our young people is a cause worthy of everyone’s support, and one with which we are proud to be involved”.
