THE Sports and Social Club at University Hospital Kerry has thanked the organisers of a fundraising tractor run which has raised €5,000 for the frontline workers.

They thanked the organising committee of the Tractor Run — Brendan Griffin, Justin Horgan, Eamonn Curby, John McElligott, Mossie J Harmon, Jeremiah Clifford and Martin Woulfe — which was held on Sunday and saw the convoy of over 110 vehicles leave Ardfert village and head to the hospital in Tralee.

Therese Carroll of the Club said; “On behalf of the sports and social club and the staff of UHK, we would like to thank you the organisers, and every one who braved the bad weather and took part in the Ardfert Tractor Run. Thank you to everyone who volunteered and did the bucket collections and stewarding along the route also. The event was a great success.

“Seeing the convoy of tractors along the route but especially on the grounds of UHK, was a magnificent sight, and it most definitely lifted the spirits of the staff and patients alike who lined up to watch the marvellous display of tractors passing through the grounds of the hospital.”

“We are blown away by the generosity and kindness shown to us from your community. We endeavour that all staff will reap the benefits of your very thoughtful and generous donation,” said Therese.
