That there is the lovely Siobhan from the Dublin 98 morning crew.
She's in Marks and Spencers on Grafton Street, Dublin today as part of the Dublin Hugathon, a world record attempt to beat the current record for most hugs in 11 hours - she has to hug over 4,315 people to do so.
UPDATE: 13:45 - Siobhan has hugged over 2,650 people already!
The early morning queues helped her do so.
It's all in aid of the 98 Care4Kids Radiothon, which is running on March 6th and 7th. Over the two days 98’s presenters and staff focus solely on 98’s Care4Kids Radiothon to raise money for the three Children’s hospitals - National Children’s Hospital Tallaght, Temple Street University Hospital and Crumlin Children’s Hospital.
Over the past two years we broadcasted live from all three children’s hospitals, airing many interviews with the sick children, their parents and hospital staff. 98’s listeners got a real feel of what it's like to be a sick kid or parent and what they deal with everyday, as well as heart wrenching stories from hospital staff that look after and treat the kids daily.You know me, happy to give a hand (or a hug) for charity - in fact I think I got three :)
Apart from the on-air success, over the past two years 98’s Care4Kids Radiothon has raised over €1 million. It was done through phone & text pledges, auctions and fun in the work place with jersey and pyjama days, where staff got involved by wearing their favourite sports shirt and pyjamas at work and donating money.
She gives a great hug. She's down there until 7pm tonight and you can follow her on the 98 website and over on http://twitter.com/hugathondublin. If you're in the area, give some money, get a hug!
