Tomorrow (Sunday), tractors will be taking over Ring of Kerry all in a good cause with funds going to three local charities.

Beginning at 11am, the Red Fox Tractor Run will start from the Red Fox Inn car park, with proceeds going to Multiple Sclerosis South Kerry and Chloe and Amber's Journey.

It will then go on through Glenbeigh followed by a stop at Cromane where refreshments will be available at Jacks' Coastguard Restaurant. After that it will go on to Killorglin and then loop back to  Caragh Lake.

Raffles, music and all sorts of entertainment will also be available at the end of the night at the Red Fox Inn.

Entry fee is €20 per tractor and donations will be accepted from the public on the day.

“The goal is to do it in aid of MS South Kerry and Chloe and Amber's Journey,” Liam Fitzgerald, one of the committee volunteers, told the Killarney Advertiser.

“Having a good community spirit is important and the getting together of it. Everyone can come, not just those with tractors.”

Everyone is welcome to come along and support these wonderful causes, he added.

Lee Strand was recognised once again for their exceptional performance and commitment to sustainability with Gold Membership at the Origin Green 2022 awards.

Origin Green is Ireland’s food and drink sustainability programme led by Bord Bia – The Irish Food Board. Gold Membership is awarded to companies who demonstrate an exceptional annual performance on their sustainability targets.

“We are delighted Lee Strand is recognised once again with the prestigious Origin Green Gold Membership for our commitment to sustainability,” Gearoid Linnane, CEO said.

“In Lee Strand environmental management and sustainability are key elements of our business model, from launching 100% renewable cartons, to reducing water usage and energy efficiency. This is a great achievement by our sustainability team who are continually striving for higher levels of environmental excellence. We would also like to thank Veronica Kennelly from the Munster Technological University who assisted Lee Strand in the development of our Origin Green plan.”

Origin Green continues to evolve to ensure Bord Bia is helping Irish food and drink companies to remain up to date with the evolving needs of trade customers and their consumers, globally. With the introduction of the Origin Green credits system in early 2022, it is now easier to identify members who are performing at a high level or excelling in their sustainability performance.

To retain ongoing membership of Origin Green, companies must subsequently submit an annual review to demonstrate clear progress against the established targets and initiatives set. This annual review is subject to an independent third-party review by their verification authority Mabbett. This ensures minimum programme requirements are consistently met and maintained. Companies receive credits for their performance in areas such as raw material sourcing; water and energy efficiency; waste reduction; packaging; and social sustainability. Origin Green has established five different membership tiers based on company size and turnover, so that a real diversity of industry is reflected in the overall Gold Membership.
