Today (Friday) is the start of a three day event at the Outlet Centre to raise funds for the HeartBeat Cardiac Patients Support Group.

PRIZE: Some of the hampers up for grabs at this weekend's Rid and Bid fundraiser for HeartBeat.

There will be lots of bargains in glassware and household utensils, books, pictures, ornaments, chess sets - even a lawnmower at HeartBeat's Rid and Bid fundraiser.

The stars of the show have to be three unusual hampers to be raffled at 4pm on Sunday. The first prize hamper is worth €450, second prize hamper is worth €200 and third prize is a hamper of cosmetics, and creams for both females and males worth €150.

Get your free blood pressure and pulse checked by the HeartBeat nurses who will be available on today (Friday) and tomorrow (Saturday) from 11am to 5pm and Sunday 12noon to 4pm.

"The HeartBeat Strutters Walk Group is part of HeartBeat’s activities. Led by specialist in cardiac exercise, Kevin Murphy, part of the money we hope to raise will go to light exercise equipment for the benefit of all our walkers with their warm up exercises," Billy O'Sullivan, Chairperson of HeartBeat, said.

"We are at the Killarney Outlet Centre this Friday, Saturday and Sunday and you are invited!"

HeartBeat produces a monthly newsletter 11 months of the year which is a free publication full of health tips and news of the many experts who come to the monthly meetings.

"You can sign up for it online or via An Post at this event. Our meetings are open to everyone."

He also added "a huge thank you to everyone who donated items" over the last week or so.

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.”
