PRESS INFO — Four community projects to benefit from Cara Credit Union’s  Lauri Healy Community Sponsorship Awards
 
Four community groups receive funds from Cara Credit Union’s Lauri Healy Community Sponsorship Awards. Speaking to Sean Roche, the Chairperson of Cara Credit Union’s Community Sponsorship Committee “Cara Credit Union is very conscious of our ethos. One way of rewarding the trust and loyalty we receive from our members is by supporting projects that can help build better communities, and add value throughout our common bond in Tralee, Castleisland and Killorglin.  Our Lauri Healy Community Sponsorship Awards helps us achieve this objective with the distribution of funds used to encourage and complement the fantastic work that community groups do to make all our lives and communities a better place to live and work. We are delighted to support four community groups during this round of applications. They are very worthy projects. We will welcome the next round of application from 1st of October to 30th of November, so if there are community groups who are undertaking community projects of €10,000 or more please enter. ”
 
Speaking to Pa Laide CEO of Cara Credit Union “Lauri Healy was one of Tralee Credit Union’s founding directors who dedicated so much time and energy to Tralee Credit Union. Lauri was also active in his support and development of other credit unions in Kerry and further afield. He was a director with Tralee Credit Union for more than 30 years, he served with Chapter 23 for as many years and as a board member of the Irish League of Credit Unions helped shape the movement in its early days. The Lauri Healy Community Sponsorship Awards is a fitting tribute to Lauri how gave so much to his local community.”  The four community projects were presented with their funding by Lauri’s wife Marie and his close friend Mary O’Brien.”
 
The community projects receiving the funds were:
 
Baile Mhuire Day Care Centre- to aid in the purchase of a bus
Castleisland AFC – Erection of a spectator barrier at Georgie O’ Callaghan Park
Ballymaceligott Health & Wellness – Development of a walkway
