Thank you to Pi­eta for all the sup­port

The Kerryman (South Kerry Edition) - - NEWS - BY SINEAD KELLE­HER

THE Kid­ney fam­ily in Ken­mare have handed over al­most €3,000 to Pi­eta House in mem­ory of 16-year old Sasha Kid­ney who trag­i­cally died by sui­cide.

The money was raised as part of Pi­eta House’s ‘Feel Good Week’.

Sasha’s par­ents, Tina and Sean, and her brother and sis­ter, Chloe and Dyl­lian, or­gan­ised a fund-raiser two weeks ago on Oc­to­ber 25 on what would have been Sasha’s 16th birth­day.

The evening of mu­sic and fire­works helped keep Sasha’s mem­ory alive but will also help oth­ers by giv­ing much needed funds to Pi­eta House who have been a huge sup­port to the Kid­ney fam­ily.

The money was pre­sented to Con O’Con­nor from Pi­eta House last week. He said that all the money raised lo­cally will go for ser­vices in Kerry. He said that fundrais­ing is vi­tal as the Gov­ern­ment only fund 15% of their work, the rest is sup­ported through fundrais­ing.

Sean and Tina said that Pi­eta House have been a huge sup­port the fam­ily since Sasha’s death ear­lier this year and they want to en­sure that oth­ers can also avail of this ser­vice.

The lo­cal com­mu­nity have ral­lied around the fam­ily and they gave gen­er­ously to the fundrais­ing to raise funds for Pi­eta House

Pi­eta House Kerry is lo­cated in Tralee. The ser­vice is to­tally free and the con­tact number is 066 7163660.
