Sheila Martin and a group of her friends have launched a ‘Ladies Who Lunch’ group to encourage women of all ages to ‘get out at least once a month and meet people’.
Last week, they launched the new group at Ballyseedy Garden Centre and the aim is to have a lunch once a month to meet up and have fun.
“This is not a glammed up social luncheon group for well-off dressed women but is basically for women who need a lift and who support each other to thrive,” said Sheila.
Kerry Samaritans and Kerry Hospice Foundation are hosting a charity cycle event on Saturday October 9, with the first group leaving the John Mitchels Complex in Tralee at 9am and any cyclists can join the event to raise money for these two worthy causes.
Jan Rice, director of Kerry Samaritans, stated that the Covid-19 pandemic has had a severe impact on the voluntary sector. This impact has affected both organisations in many ways, most especially in relation to their fundraising capabilities.
Both Kerry Samaritans and Kerry Hospice Foundation are reliant solely on donations to keep their services running.
