A Cork-based clothing company have teamed up with Walt Disney Studios Ireland to raise money for a charity looking after sick children.
Hairy Baby owner and founder Daragh Murphy has announced that they will sell special edition t-shirts to coincide with the release of Toy Story 4 in order to raise money for the Children's Medical and Research Foundation, the fundraising charity for the National Children's Research Centre and Children's Health Ireland, based in Crumlin.
The charity will get all the profits made from sales of the €17 unisex t-shirts, Mr Murphy announced.
“We’re proud to link up once more with our friends at Walt Disney Studios Ireland to design a limited edition 'chari-tee' special to celebrate the release of the fantastic family adventure, Toy Story 4 in cinemas,” he said.
CMRF Crumlin welcomed this as they said they are heavily reliant on "corporate donations and partnerships".

“We are thrilled that Hairy Baby and Walt Disney Studios Ireland have chosen us to be a charity partner for these amazing t-shirts.” Gráinne Kennedy, Head of Philanthropy and Partnerships at CMRF Crumlin, said.
"We really appreciate this fundraising merchandise.”
All money raised will go towards improving the care of the 150,000 children who spend time in the Cumlin Hospital every year.
