ONE of Kerry’s favourite charities is to benefit from the proceeds of a five-star afternoon tea party.

The Kerry Cancer Support Group, which operates the Kerry-Cork Health Link Bus, will be the beneficiary of the event in the Muckross Park Hotel where patrons will be treated to a glass of prosecco on arrival before being tempted to a selection of pastries with live entertainment spot prizes on the day.

It will take place at 1 o’clock on Saturday, April 28 and tickets, priced at €25, are on sale from the Muckross Park Hotel reception.

The Kerry Cancer Support Group, which has football legend ColmCooper as its ambassador, insists that nobody should face their cancer journey alone and it is devoted to maintaining a welcoming environment while ensuring that service users have immediate access to free programmes and resources.

The charity has been providing a community service since 2007 and it operates a free return bus service between Kerry and hospitals in Cork for patients attending for treatment.

“We are always delighted to be involved in events like this and we are really looking forward to a wonderful fundraising initiative,” said Kerry Cancer Support Group spokeswoman Breda Dyland.

“Events like this are of great benefit, not just financially but they also raise awareness of the charity. All money raised stays local and quite literally keep our service on the road,” she added.

Tickets for the afternoon tea party, priced at €25, are on sale from Muckross Park Hotel reception.
