The team at The Lake Hotel Killarney were delighted to issue a cheque to the value of €5,677 for Temple Street Children’s Hospital. The hotel’s Employee Representative team decided to lace up their running shoes and form a running club to raise funds for this very worthy cause. The team took part in a series of running events from September this year and invited their colleagues to complete four 5kilometre runs through the National Park and in the surrounding areas. Each participant’s entry fee was donated to the chosen charity. In September, four Lake Hotel employees completed the Dingle Marathon, seeking sponsorship from their colleagues with all proceeds going to Temple Street. The Lake Hotel employees were delighted to sponsor their comrades and help raise funds for Temple Street Children’s Hospital. Total funds raised from the running club membership and the Dingle Marathon sponsorship amounted to €5,677.
Stephen Dennehy, chairperson of the Employee Representative team at The Lake Hotel is already thinking of next year’s fundraising efforts. “We were delighted to be sending a cheque of this value to Temple Street Children’s hospital and are very grateful to everyone who supported this fantastic cause. Each year we organize a fundraising event, last year we completed a sky dive in aid of Kerry Mountain Rescue, this year we formed The Lake running club in aid of Temple Street, so we look forward to what next year will bring.”
