As part of a fundraising drive for Pieta House, Headley’s Bridge, Knocknagoshel native, Tim Moynihan and a few friends are doing a parachute jump at Kilkenny Aerodrome at 12noon on this Saturday.

Tim’s jumping friends include former Desmonds footballer, Martin Horgan, Ted Cronin from Rathmore and Louise Ryan from Kilmoyley.

Fundraising Events

“We have all been working hard to raise funds for Pieta House and we’ve held a sports quiz and other events to help with the fundraising,” said the Radio Kerry Terrace Talk presenter.

Tim Moynihan was in Castleisland on Wednesday evening for the presentation of a cheque for €1,000 from his fellow parishioners and Spike Players Drama Group members.

Returned for Presentation

They staged their current play, Poor Jimmy at the Ivy Leaf Art Centre on Sunday night, March 25th and they returned to the Ivy Leaf during the week to make the presentation what they deemed as a worthy cause.

Bag Packing and Sports Quiz

“As part of our efforts to raise funds for the jump and the charity we bag packed in Garvey’s SuperValu and we made a €1,000 from our sports quiz at the Rose Hotel.

“Now we’re delighted to reveive a cheque for €1,000 from Spike Players from their recent play and we’re very grateful to them for their efforts.

A Worthy Charity

We have a number of other supporters who feel, as we do, that Pieta House is a worthy charity. When we get our feet firmly back on the ground on Saturday just afternoon, we’ll prepare to present Pieta House with a cheque for €5,000 – and that’s thanks to all our generous supporters including my kind neighbours in the Spike Players group,” said Tim.
