MEMBERS of Down Syndrome Kerry were on hand on Wednesday to accept a cheque from The Ashe Hotel after an event was held in aid of the organisation in Easter.

The annual Easter Tea Party was another huge success with tickets snapped up well in advance, eventually raising €1,170.

Hosted and organised by the Ashe Hotel and supported by Tralee Chamber Alliance, it saw families converge on the hotel on Easter Sunday for a day of fun and entertainment.

“It was absolutely super day with a wonderful atmosphere,” said Christobel Quirke of Down Syndrome Kerry. “The Disney Princess characters were there, music, dancing, great food, cupcake decorating…this is my third year here and it keeps getting better and better. The staff and volunteers were amazing and we can’t thank them enough.”

“We’re so grateful to received the money this year. Funds raised goes towards paying for speech and language therapy, occupational therapy, swimming, horse-riding, drumming, yoga, Zumba and educational courses for older adults.”

Jane Boyle of The Ashe Hotel, said they were delighted to once again host the charity event and was delighted to help out Down Syndrome Kerry.
