Get snapping to support Phoenix Women’s Centre

The Phoenix Women’s Resource Centre in Market Place, Tralee is running a photography competition to promote its work and raise funds for the centre which supports the women of Kerry.

Opened in September 2018, the Phoenix Women’s Centre is located in Market Place, Maine Street, opposite the Radio Kerry offices.

The organisation, which is run and staffed entirely by volunteers, acts as a signposting service, outreach, drop-in service and support network for women.

Sunrise Appeal to raise funds for Pieta

Organisers of the annual Darkness Into Light event in Tralee are urging people to sign up and take part in this year’s Sunrise Appeal on May 8 to raise much-needed funds for suicide-prevention charity Pieta House.

The annual Darkness Into Light walk is a vital fundraiser for Pieta House and the eight walks around Kerry, including Tralee, which are held each May help support its lifesaving work.

While public health restrictions mean the walks cannot take place in their usual format again this year, organisers of the event locally are calling on the public to sign up for the Sunrise Appeal on Saturday May 8.

Speaking to Kerry’s Eye this week, Pat Turner, who is a member of the Tralee Darkness Into Light Committee, said the pandemic has hit alot of fundraising events and it is very important that people contribute to the Pieta House appeal.
