A COFFEE morning fundraiser, sponsored by Killarney Royal Hotel and the Hayfield Family Collection, has raised a whopping €5,000 for a popular local cause.

There was a real feelgood factor to the event, held in the Killarney Royal, to raise funds for the South West Counselling Service which has been providing affordable counselling services in Kerry since 1994.

The charity has a large team of counsellors offering support to children, adolescents and adults in Killarney and its surrounds.

Event host and Hayfield Family Collection communications director, Claire Scally, remarked: “We were absolutely delighted with the turnout. This is an extremely important service for those living in Kerry and we were delighted to sponsor this event and assist with their fundraising efforts and support the excellent work that they do.”
