Friends of UHK pre­par­ing for fundrais­ing night at the dogs

The Kerryman (Tralee Edition) - - NEWS - By FER­GUS DENNEHY

AFTER the huge suc­cess of last year’s fund-raiser, the ‘Friends of Univer­sity Hos­pi­tal Kerry’ are go­ing at it again this week­end with an­other great night at the dogs in store.

This year’s fund-raiser will take place on the night of Fri­day, July 13, at 7pm.

Last year’s event raised over €70,000 and helped to pur­chase a Car­diac Echo Scan­ner for the Car­diac Unit of the hos­pi­tal.

With an­other long list of equip­ment that they hope to do­nate to the hos­pi­tal, the group are no doubt hop­ing that this year will be just as suc­cess­ful.

Ex­am­ples of some of the equip­ment which the group is hop­ing to buy in­clude a spe­cialised ul­tra­sound for the Emer­gency De­part­ment, a scan­ner to help de­tect ma­jor prob­lems with the blad­der, video equip­ment for the En­doscopy Unit and an in­stru­ment for de­tect­ing in­fec­tions in ul­cers.

Tick­ets for the night are set to cost just €5.

Mem­bers of the ‘Friends of Univer­sity Hos­pi­tal Kerry’ pic­tured pro­mot­ing their an­nual fundrais­ing night at the dogs which will take place on Fri­day July 13.
