Kerry Hospice Calls On Public To Take Part In ‘The Long Good Friday Walk’

Posted by


Kerry Hospice is hoping people take part in the Long Good Friday Walk between St Patricks Day and Good Friday.

THE Good Friday Walks in aid of Kerry Hospice have become a staple of Easter events around the county over the past 20 years.

However, last year people were deprived of the chance to meet up due to COVID restrictions and while this will be the case again this Easter there is a way of getting out and raising funds for the great cause.

Kerry Hospice has decided to do something different and are asking you to dust off the walking shoes and take to the streets, highways and byways of Kerry, but in a ‘virtual group’ and within your 5k.

This ‘Long Good Friday Walk’ can be done anytime, starting on St Patrick’s Day and finishing on Good Friday, April 2.

As a collection bucket is not possible this year, the Hospice has set up a donation page on iDonate, which you can access through their social media outlets and their website, where you can make a donation.

For those of you who cannot access this page you can make a donation by contacting your local hospice branch.

You can also send in your picture or tag the Hospice on social media. All funds that are raised by Kerry Hospice stay in Kerry.

Kerry Hospice is currently entering year three of their five year pledge, in which they have to raise close on €500,000 annually. These funds go to aid in the running costs of the Inpatient Unit, the Day Unit and the services that they provide.

It also helps to fund the wonderful Home Care services. To make an online donation, please use our special page

You can also donate directly to local Kerry Hospice volunteers. For further information or inquiries please contact branch members.
