Their kindness knows no bounds as staff from one local hotel teamed up once again to raise funds for charity. Led by Executive Chef, Noel Enright, the kitchen team at The Lake Hotel not only completed a series of 5k events but the male staff also opted to change their look - for the month of November - by taking part in the Movember challenge all in aid of the Palliative Care Unit in University Hospital Kerry (UHK).

Each participant’s entry fee will be donated to the chosen charity. A GoFundMe page: 'Lake Hotel raise funds for Palliative Care Unit' has also been created to help raise funds for this very worthy cause.

Palliative care is an approach that improves the quality of life of patients and their families facing the problem associated with life-threatening illness, through the prevention and relief of suffering. Kerry Specialist Palliative Care is a fully integrated service providing care to patients across all settings; home, nursing home, community hospitals, acute hospital and specialist inpatient unit. The hub of the service is the specialist palliative care unit which is attached to UHK and has access to all its services. The palliative care team work together to provide the best possible holistic care for patients, their families and loved ones.

“We are delighted to be raising funds for this very worthy cause," Noel Enright from The Lake Hotel said.

"The Palliative Care Unit do such tremendous work and we look forward to making our donation to them. Last year we raised funds for Temple Street Children’s Hospital and we also completed a sky dive in aid of Kerry Mountain Rescue, we’re excited to see what next year will bring.” As a seasonal hotel, The Lake Hotel will remain closed until January 21, 2021. During this time, The Lake Hotel reservations team remain fully operational and are happy to assist with any queries for 2021 and beyond. Christmas vouchers may be purchased either at the hotel or via phone/online 064 6631035 www.lakehotel.com.

What kind of insurance does a building contractor need?

Commercial vehicles and machinery

First and foremost, if a building contractor has commercial vehicles then road risk cover is a requirement by law. As with all other motor insurance products, the cover options would be comprehensive, third party fire and theft, or third party only. Commercial fleet polices can cover many vehicles under one policy.
The value of the vehicle is important to review each year, as are the drivers.
Commercial vehicle policies usually give “open driving 25 to 70-years-old” but sometimes naming the drivers who will use the vehicle is a better option and can save you money.
You may need road risk and associated covers for driving plant and machinery such as teleporters, tractors and the like.

Employers, Public and Products Liability Insurance

Employers Liability Insurance covers your legal liability in the event that you are negligent and required to pay compensation for bodily injuries to an employee in the course of their employment. Employee numbers and annual wages will need to be disclosed accurately and annually.
Public Liability Insurance covers your legal liability in the event that you are negligent and required to pay compensation for bodily injuries or damage to third party property in the course of your business activities.
Your annual turnover will need to be disclosed and reviewed annually. Many main contractors and State bodies may require the tradesperson to have a minimum of €6.5 million limit of indemnity.
Products Liability Insurance covers your legal liability for injuries and property damage in connection with goods sold or supplied.

Other covers needed may include “Tools in Transit” cover which can be arranged in conjunction with your commercial vehicle policy and “Engineering Inspection Cover” may be required on plant and machinery. A “Contract Works Policy” protects the building works in progress against fire. Some insurers can include “Personal Accident” cover on a combined liability policy.

You should seek out the expert advice of a professional insurance broker to review your insurance needs. At Healy Insurances, we can review your business requirements, offer expert advice and save you money on your premiums.
