Wes Hoolahan Makes Sizeable Donation To Temple Street After Testimonial

Wes Hoolahan has donated €18,700 to Temple Street children's hospital, monies which were raised during his recent Norwich City testimonial.

The former Republic of Ireland international ended a 10-year association with the club in 2018, with his testimonial played in Carrow Road in May of this year. Around 20,000 supporters attended the game, which doubled up as a testimonial for Russel Martin.

The Dubliner visited the hospital last week to hand over the donation, after he made a pledge to raise the funds back in May.

This is what Temple Street had to say on their website:

We are so grateful to Wes for the wonderful donation he has made to Temple Street. Thank you Wes! The money you have raised is going to fund vital lifesaving equipment for our little patients here in Temple Street.

We are thrilled to have you as a great friend and support of our special hospital.

Hoolahan recently signed a contract with Newcaslt Jets in the Australian A-League.
