Kerry's Centre of Excellence will host a fundraiser for two very worthy local cancer charities.

There are very few families that haven’t been touched by the services offered by the Kerry Hospice Foundation and the Palliative Care Unit at UHK.

These are the two recipients of the novel Art Sale & Raffle that will take place next Friday (September 2) at the GAA Centre of Excellence in Currans from 6.30pm.

Like all charities they were badly hit over the last two years when fundraising activities were reduced to a minimum.

So now a number of local artists have come together to donate some of their work, free of charge, to be sold on the night where bargains are guaranteed!

The organisers have also kindly donated a number of very tempting prizes that will be won by those lucky enough to have their raffle ticket pulled out on the night.

"This hugely impressive venue is the training home of many of our hugely successful Kerry GAA teams so you will be walking in the footsteps of this year's Sam Maguire winners as well as many other stars of the Green and Gold," Padraig Harnett said.

"So come along to the GAA Centre of Excellence, have a look at the art and make an offer on what you like, chance your luck in the raffle, enjoy the refreshments on offer all in the knowledge that every cent raised on the night will go to the Kerry Hospice Foundation and Palliative Care Unit UHK."

Jumpers have helped to raise almost €10k so far – but now it’s a very special jersey which could drive the fundraising numbers up!

A Kerry football jersey signed by the 2022 All-Ireland winning team is up for grabs via a fundraising link once a donation is made to the Presents for Palliative fundraiser.

On Friday eight local schools including Holy Cross Mercy, Killarney Community College, Presentation Monastery, Lissivigeen, St Brendan’s College, St Brigid’s, St Francis Special School, and St Oliver’s
swapped their uniforms for their most colourful festive gear with funds going to help the amazing services in the Palliative Care Unit/Kerry Hospice Foundation.

“The day took place across the schools involved last Friday (December 2) and looks like it has been a success,” teacher Elaine Moynihan from St Brendan’s College told the Killarney Advertiser.

“The donations from the schools are still being counted but students look to be on their way towards making their goal of €10k.”

The iDonate ‘Fundraising For Kerry Hospice Foundation’ has been very helpful in this regard, she added.

“Anyone who donates via the link and leaves their name will be in with a chance to win a Kerry jersey signed by the 2022 All-Ireland winning team which will be presented to them before Christmas by a couple of members of the team.

“This was organised by the students involved in the fundraiser as a way to say thanks, and give back, to the members of the community who have gotten involved in the event – the link is live until December 18 and the draw will be made the following day.”
