Tralee Meals on Wheels are an essential service and will remain open delivering meals three times a week throughout the lockdown.
The service delivers to homes in the Tralee area and as far as Fenit, Ardfert and Ballymacelligott but Paddy Kevane, President of St Vincent de Paul in Tralee, who oversees the Meals on Wheels service with Junior Locke, said that ‘nobody will be left without a meal’.
“Anyone who is in need can contact the Tralee Office,” said Paddy “and if you are outside the Tralee delivery area, the Meals on Wheels service will link you up with a service that is more suitable. Nobody will be left behind.”
During the month of February, members of the public have been invited to ‘Jog 56 Miles’ to raise much-needed funds for Pieta House.
One person taking up the challenge is Tralee lady Tricia Moran who keeps the memory of her beloved sister Grace close to her and is delighted for the opportunity to raise the money for the charity.
Grace, the daughter of Jimmy and Eileen Moran, passed away in November 2017 and since her untimely death, the family have kept her memory alive by raising funds for Pieta House. Grace has a daughter, Jade, who is 16 years old.
