CHRISTMAS LIGHTS RAISED €7,891.14 FOR PALLIATIVE CARE UHK
The Murphy family, Dromakee, Kilflynn are delighted to say, on Tuesday 18th of January, there presented a cheque to Palliative Care UHK for a total of €7,891.14.
They want to sincerely thank everyone who made a donation. Your generosity was overwhelming. Thank you so much for choosing to donate to such a worthy cause, through our annual Christmas Lights Fundraising Event.
Thank you to everyone who shared the Facebook post and for all the lovely messages, in particular, Mike Parker, Kilflynn, who helped greatly with publicising the fundraiser.
As a family, as they approached their first Christmas since their dad passed away last June, the support they received through the fundraiser was overwhelming and gave the family a massive lift. They received donations from friends from many parts of the country, some work colleagues took it upon themselves to make collections and friends and neighbours contributed massively.
I hope all those who came to view the lights enjoyed the experience.
Noreen, Michael, Wayne Murphy, Jessica and Brian Nammock, found it very hard to put up the Christmas Lights this Christmas but got strength from carrying their dad’s wish and also carrying on his tradition. I know their Dad Mike would be so proud and as a family they are proud beyond measure of their dad and his kind heart.
So again, thank you all for being so generous. Mary Shanahan and all the Palliative Care Unit in UHK were delighted to receive a sum of money that will make a big difference in the lives of those that need it most here in Kerry.
