DONATION: Pavers in the Outlet Centre, Killarney made a donation to Kerry Cancer Support Group Health Link Transport. Pictured from l-r were: Breda Dyland (Kerry Cancer Support Group), Norma Burke (Pavers) and Trish Kelly (Kerry Cancer Support Group).

Members of Kerry Cancer Support Group - Health Link Transport were presented with a cheque for £2,000 - or €2151 - by Norma Burke, Assistant Manager of Pavers in the Outlet Centre in Killarney last week.

Founded by Catherine Paver in 1971, Pavers established The Foundation in 2018 to enable charity giving by the business and its 1700 staff. Through the Foundation, the amount pledged to good causes by Pavers has risen to £2.5m, which includes employee grant applications, Charities of the Year and donations on behalf of the family.

Each staff member can put forward causes close to their heart which relate to health, education, or community. A total of £44,900 has been awarded to the second round of 34 applications, with donations ranging from £400 to £5,000.
The donation will be used to complement and enhance the existing services that Kerry Cancer Support Group provides including the Health Link Transport services which buses patients to hospitals in Cork and Limerick for their cancer treatment daily.

“I chose to support the Kerry Cancer Support Group as while I was on maternity leave my baby and I often met the bus on our early morning walks,” Norma Burke, Assistant Manager at Pavers in Killarney, said. “I would see people going from their own cars, leaving their loved ones to get on the bus. The people always had a smile on their face when getting on the bus, which I thought was amazing because of what they knew was ahead of them that day.”

The Kerry Cork link bus offers such a valuable service for people, but also for their families, she added.

“It gives them ease and peace of mind to know that they are safe and able to speak to people in similar situations. The very generous donation will help to keep the buses going.”
Breda Dyland, Manager of the Kerry Cancer Support Group added that they’d like to express their sincere gratitude to Norma for the nomination and to the Pavers Foundation for this very generous donation.

“We were absolutely delighted to hear that we’d been successful. The donation will be put to very good use!”
