Concert At Siamsa To Help Out Charity

Posted by


Tralee Mountaineering Club members  Margaret Twomey, Joan O Regan, Dan Devane, Helen Fitzgibbon, Joan Brosnan and Fiona Forde in Kenya last October.

A CONCERT will take place next month in Siamsa Tire as a fundraiser for the Brighter Communities Worldwide.

It’s a cause close to the heart of a number of local people, as six members of the Tralee Mountaineering Club travelled to Kenya in October 2018 with the charity on a two week volunteer project to help a sustainable tourism project.

The Tralee group of Margaret Twomey, Joan O’Regan, Dan Devane, Helen Fitzgibbon, Joan Brosnan and Fiona Forde shared their skills and experience to help develop walking routes, train guides and porters in navigation and they facilitated courses in remote emergency care and lifeskills and helped install smokeless cooking stoves to help create healthy homesteads.

The concert, which takes place on April 4 at 8pm, is called ‘‘Bridge over Troubled Water’ and features Karen Underwood and her four piece band.

Karen brings the best of Blues in this Aretha Franklin style show and will be joined by her daughter Christina on stage. Tickets are €26 and can be booked at Siamsa Tire on 066-7123055.

Brighter Communities Worldwide is a charity with a wealth of experience building sustainable communities in East Africa. They work in partnership with communities, to deliver programmes that enrich their lives and help create better futures for them and their families.
