Fundraiser for brain injuries

Fergus Dennehy

Two venues in Kerry will hold fundraising bake sales next week to help support those who have been affected by brain injuries.

Milltown Secondary School will hold their bake sale on Wednesday, March 13, from 12-1.30pm while the next day, Thursday, March 14, from 11am-2pm, an event will be held in the Castleisland Resource Centre.

All money raised on the day will go towards the local branch of the 'Acquired Brain Injury Ireland' (ABII) charity here in Kerry. The two Kerry events are being held during what is the National Brain Awareness Week, which runs from March 11 to March 17. "Your support or donation will make a real difference to people who need our help after their lives are turned  upside down after brain injury," said Jonathan Power of ABII.

"Monies raised will go to support our local services so we can provide more personalised rehabilitation programmes to more brain injury survivors," he said.
