OR­GAN­IS­ERS of the an­nual Jamie Wrenn/Mike Deane me­mo­rial walk can sleep easy this week­end af­ter they pre­sented a whop­ping €15,126 cheque to Re­cov­ery Haven Kerry.

The im­pres­sive sum of money puts the walk over €100,000 raised over the last few years with more than 100 walk­ers again tak­ing part in this year’s event back in July; with or­gan­is­ers Mary Lynch and San­dra Finn step­ping away from the walk this year, it is a fit­ting con­clu­sion.

“We’re ab­so­lutely thrilled with it now that’s for sure and cer­tain. It’s a great amount of money to raise on just one day,” said San­dra, speak­ing on Fri­day af­ter­noon.

“We raised over €5,000 on the road alone. The kind­ness of the peo­ple of Kerry re­ally shows,” she con­tin­ued.

San­dra said that be­ing able to hand over the cheque to a wor­thy char­ity such as Re­cov­ery Haven was a spe­cial mo­ment.

“They don’t re­ceive any spe­cial fund­ing but still the services and sup­port that they pro­vide is phe­nom­e­nal,” she fin­ished.

A cheque of €15,126 was pre­sented to Re­cov­ery Haven on Thurs­day; the money was the pro­ceeds from the an­nual Jamie Wrenn/Mike Deane Me­mo­rial Walk.
