A CHARITY bake sale took place in the Tralee branch of Ulster Bank on Friday as part of their ‘One Week in June’ nationwide fundraiser.

The Tralee branch decided to do a bake sale where staff members including Kerry footballers Kieran Donaghy and Darran O’Sullivan provided the cakes. Whatever money the branch made from donations on the day, Ulster Bank said they would double it.

The former All Stars brought in their own homemade cakes for the event, although it was said Darran O’Sullivan had a bit of help from Mr Kipling.

“The people of Tralee are very good for charity, it went very well last year as well,” said Kieran Donaghy.

“It’s gone really well, we’ve had fantastic donations all day long from people who’ve brought cakes in themselves and local businesses, the customers have been more then generous,” said branch manager, Veronica Slattery.

With Kerry’s opening round championship match coming up on Sunday against Clare, both players were fully aware of the watchful gaze of the public should they be tempted to have a sneaky brownie.

The charities that will benefit from the fundraiser are Bernardos, Concern, Irish Cancer Society, Irish Heart Foundation, The Irish Hospice Foundation, Rehab Group, the Simon Community and St Vincent De Paul.
