DO YOU REMEMBER the People in Need Telethon? The last one was held in 2007, but today its chairman said that the charity event has run its course.
In a TheJournal.ie report by Gavan Reilly today, RTÉ confirmed that there were no plans for another Telethon, while People in Need Trust chairman David Harvey said that despite a few attempts to get it off the ground again, the event ran out of steam.
The last Telethon saw thousands of fundraising events take place around the country, from static triathlons to fashion shows in circus tents, helping the event to make a profit of just under €7 million.
In the five years since that event, post-Celtic Tiger Ireland has undergone huge changes, and people have found their finances stretched. But would that stop a Telethon from working if one was run again next year?
Today, we want to know what you think:
Would another People in Need Telethon work if it was run in 2013?
