A VERY practical fundraiser in aid of Killarney Heartbeat, has been lined up for later this month by the Killarney branch of Ulster Bank.
Staff will host a home expert information event on Saturday, October 26 where interested homeowners and house buyers can speak to local professionals, including building contractors, engineers, architects and interior designers, in exchange for a discretionary donation to the charity.
Professionals lined up to offer top tips are consultant architect Davide Mosca, McMahon Culloty Construction, Reeks consulting engineers and interior designer Agne Kremenskiene of AK Interiors
The 30-40 minute slots will take place throughout the day from 9.30am to 4.00pm but times must be booked in advance.
The event will be an ideal opportunity for people to meet with the experts for those thinking about seeking for planning permission and want to get ideas about how to start, what kind of house they want, the style and the likely cost of total build.
It will also benefit those who already have planning permission for a new home build but want to get an idea of costings or how to decorate or people thinking of adding of an extension and would like a first draft of a drawing, get an idea of costing and how to design the interior.
The home expert information event forms part of Ulster Bank’s ongoing Do Good, Feel Good initiative, which encourages colleagues to come together and raise money for charities of their choice.
HeartBeat is a voluntary support group which aims to help people living with heart disease, stroke or a cardiac event return to living as full as life as possible.
Billy O’Sullivan from Killarney Heartbeat, said: “We work every day to provide information and events in the local area so we need all the help we can get to ensure the best possible support for those who’ve suffered heart disease, a stroke or a cardiac event”.
He added: “I want to thank everyone who is involved in organising and hosting this wonderful initiative, particularly Ulster Bank in Killarney and the experts who are giving up their precious time and advice.”
Slots should be booked in advance by emailing [email protected] and in return for the consultations, people are asked to bring a donation on the day for HeartBeat.
