In loving memory of Peter Kierkegaard, he left us love and happiness. From all your friends at work and home.

Christmas Is Coming!

The annual sunflower Day took place on the 12th of June last. Like many of our usual events, it wasn't able to take place in the normal manner. The street collections sould not take place this year due to covid restrictions. It is one of our big fundraisers, which is part of a national campaign. Two years ago, we raised over €40,000, all of which stayed here to support Kerry Palliative Care services. 

This is year it was slightly different. In an effort to keep the tradition alive we had a Virtual sunflower garden. 

We had an iDonate page with the option to donate if you can all. The idea was that we added a sunflower on your behalf in memory of a loved one or just someone you are thinking of this time of year. We wrote your message on the back of the printed card and added them to the garden which was on the grounds of the Inpatient Unit.

We are hugely grateful to you all for the wonderful support and the foundation is truly blown away by the generosity that has been shown over the last 30 years. Especially this last year which has been a hugely difficult one for so many charities.

All we can say is Thank You.
