A CHEQUE for nearly €23,000 was presented to Kerry Hospice last week thanks to the generosity of the Ó Mathúna family who own the Meadowlands Hotel.

The hotel recently celebrated their 20th year in business under the Ó Mathúna family with an anniversary festival weekend of sports-themed events which was all in aid of Kerry Hospice, a voluntary organisation which has been in existence now for 28 years.

Because of the hotel’s efforts, and indeed the help, support and generosity of their community and business partners in Tralee and beyond, they raised €22,820.

Because of the Meadowlands Hotel fundraising efforts, Kerry Hospice Foundation will be able to buy Palliative Care equipment, aids and appliances, provide ongoing training for staff and maintain their two buildings which offers care and support to patients and their families, free of charge, helping them to cope with the problems associated with life-threatening illness.

Mairead Fernane, Kerry Hospice Treasurer said; “We would like to say míle buíochas to Peigí and Paddy Ó Mathúna for their extremely generous fundraising efforts in aid of the hospice. Fundraising is always a challenge, even for worthy causes such as ours, so this cheque takes an amount of pressure off us for the current year and will help us maintain services that are so badly needed.

Paddy Ó Mathúna said; “We are delighted with the efforts by everyone to bring the festival to life and we’d like to thank the Tralee public for helping to raise as much money for Kerry Hospice Foundation who provide fantastic support to Palliative care patients in Tralee and the wider county.”
