Hospice stunned by McCarthy's generous fundraising achievement
LISTOWEL's branch of the Kerry Hospice were blown away this week to receive a cheque for well over €5,000 - proceeds of the recent 'Shave or Dye' event at McCarthy's Bar in Finuge.
In what was an incredible fundraiser - an a lot of fun on the night - the bar amassed generous contributions as people from all over the area responded put their hands in their pockets to the campaign.
"€1,500 came in on the night alone," said Mary McCarthy of McCarthy's bar. "We couldn't get over how generous people, it's been fantastic!"
The idea for the fundraiser came from Mary's daughter Nollaig and a group of Finuge locals who were keen to help out a service that is vitally important to Listowel and surrounding areas.
