THE new set of Christmas cards launched by the Kerry Hospice Foundation on Thursday last by Patricia Sheahan, Consultant in Palliative Medicine, which this year contains a message of hope for the times we live in.

Also present at the launch was artist Jane Hilliard, who again designed the entire pack of cards, which is called ‘A Kerry Christmas’, inspired by places in the county.

Jane has been a regular contributor to the Christmas cards for years and works as a full-time professional painter.

Kerry Hospice is confident that more cards will be sold this year because of the times we live in and they have changed the greeting on the inside to include a message of hope which is much needed.

Kerry Hospice thanked Frank Hayes and Kerry Group for their sponsorship of the cards which enables all money raised through the sales to go towards the Foundation.

A pack of ten cards costs €7 and can be bought from Kerry Hospice branch members as well as various outlets in the county and in Jane Hilliard’s gallery in Tralee Shopping Centre.

It’s a vital fundraiser for the Kerry Hospice Foundation and around €40,000 is raised each year from sales of the cards which is now in its 28th year.
