Santa comes to Beaufort

A man with a big heart, Santa is always ready to help out a good cause which is why he has agreed to lend his services to the boys and girls of Beaufort Youth Club to set up a Christmas Club House next Sunday, December 10, from 12 noon to 5pm.

I know from previous articles that the club members are a creative, innovative bunch with great leaders. This project is no different from the others I’ve written about in that it’s brimming with great ideas. For instance, there will be a live crib with a donkey and sheep in the grounds of the Old Barracks where Santa and his Club House will be based.

Musicians hit the right note for MS Society

Killarney musicians hit the right note for charity at the Gleneagle Hotel last Friday when they volunteered their talents at a dance that raised €2,400 for the Killarney and South Kerry branch of the Multiple Sclerosis Society.

When I heard about the amount of work that went into organising the dance supported by 160 people, I was impressed yet again by the volunteering spirit of locals who give so generously of their time and energy to enhance the lives of others. Ye’re great, lads.
