 The AGM of the Castleisland branch of the Kerry Hospice Foundation will take place on this Monday evening, January 23rd. at 6.45pm in the River Island Hotel.

New members are welcome to attend. The branch would like to thank all who contributed to the recent church gate collection from which €2,424.00 was raised for the foundation.

The Kerry Hospice Foundation (KHF) was established in 1990 as a voluntary organisation.  The Kerry Home Care Team was founded by the KHF in conjunction with the Southern Health Board and with some funding from the Irish Cancer Society.

The Foundation funds a wide range of palliative care services in Kerry. These include counselling services (e.g. bereavement) and alternative therapies, such as reflexology, aromatherapy, reikii.
