Help make his­tory this Thurs­day

The Kerryman (Tralee Edition) - - TARBERT -

LOTS of lo­cal peo­ple did lots of things – and strange things, too - at The Mar­ket House in the course of its sev­eral hun­dred years of trad­ing at the bot­tom of the town.

I bet you that no gen­er­a­tion of Is­lan­ders ever gath­ered within its deeply his­toric walls to drink cof­fee for a lo­cal and wor­thy char­ity.

We can make our own bit of his­tory on this Thurs­day, Septem­ber 14 by do­ing just that for the Kerry Hospice Foun­da­tion Cof­fee Morn­ing from 9am to 5pm. That makes it a cof­fee morn­ing, noon and evening and so be it.

“Ire­land’s Big­gest Cof­fee Morn­ing is one of the ma­jor fundrais­ers for hospice na­tion­wide and this year the event will take place Thurs­day, Septem­ber 14 in venues all over the coun­try,” said lo­cal branch PRO Liz Gal­wey.

The Castleis­land branch is on the move this year and its mem­bers have an­nounced that the Mar­ket House build­ing on Lower Main Street will be the venue for the day. Liz said that the com­mit­tee is also invit­ing peo­ple to host an event in their own homes or busi­nesses. Cof­fee and pro­mo­tional ma­te­rial will be pro­vided by hospice.

“There is flex­i­bil­ity around the event so if the 14th doesn’t suit you then you can hold your event on an­other morn­ing,’ she said.

“Jack Shana­han will host a cof­fee morn­ing on the 14 th in his Haven Phar­macy at Gar­vey’s Su­perValu and Eileen O’Shea, Droum­roe, Cur­row will host a cof­fee morn­ing on Fri­day, Septem­ber 22 in her home,” said Liz.

The lo­cal branch is also put­ting out a re­quest for as­sis­tance on the day so if you have a free hour please con­tact Liz on 086 28 33 328.

Kerry Hospice is a com­pletely vol­un­tary or­gan­i­sa­tion. All funds raised lo­cally will re­main in Kerry.

The of­fi­cial grand open­ing of the new Pal­lia­tive Care In­pa­tient Unit, lo­cated on the grounds of Univer­sity Hos­pi­tal Kerry, will take place on Fri­day, Septem­ber 22.

For fur­ther de­tails or to ob­tain a cof­fee morn­ing pack please con­tact Jack Shana­han on 066 71 41225 be­tween 9am and 7pm or any other com­mit­tee mem­ber.

Hospice branch chair­man Jack Shana­han is lead­ing his com­mit­tee to the Mar­ket House for cof­fee to­mor­row from 9am.
