THE proceeds of three fundraisers held over the past year were presented to the Kerry Hospice Foundation at The Meadowlands Hotel on Thursday.

The Tralee Chain Gang Cycling Club held a ‘Spin Into Spring’ event aimed at getting people out cycling earlier this year.

They held a coffee morning event at The Meadowlands Hotel last September and they also sold cycling bottles sponsored by McElligott’s Garage to members and reusable cups, sponsored by Casey Stephenson Accountants, were also sold to club members.

“I’m involved with the Chain Gang myself so I know they’re a great club and we’re delighted they chose to support Kerry Hospice with the fundraisers,” said Maura Sullivan of Kerry Hospice.

The Chain Gang will continue to organise fundraisers during the forthcoming year, but will choose another local charity to support this time.
