A FASHION fundraiser will be held next month to help a family who lost their home in a fire near Ballyheigue in November.

The Duggans from Kerry Head were out when a fire engulfed their home on November 28 leaving them with nothing.

Now, a fundraising campaign is under way to get them back on their feet.
