Hospital staff all set for 'UHK's Got Talent'

Simon Brouder

The hard-working staff at University Hospital Kerry are even busier than usual at the moment as they prepare for their upcoming charity fundraiser 'UHK's Got Talent'.

The event follows on from last year's hugely successful  'Sickly Come Dancing' night which raised a massive €67,000 for the redevelopment of UHK's chemotherapy day unit.

Funds raised at UHK's Got Talent - which takes place at the Brandon Conference Centre on Friday, March 29 - will also go to the chemo unit. The show will see 71 hospital staff members perform various acts including music, drama, dancing and singing in front of a crowd of around 1,000 people.

For the past few months the performers have been training with choreographer Honour Hurley to put together a fun-filled night of entertainment. UHK's sports and social club have also recruited RTÉ's Dáithí Ó Sé; TD Michael Healy-Rae and Elma Walsh to act as judges on the night with Radio Kerry's Tim Moynihan as MC.
