Jigsaw Kerry crowned (Fundraising) Rose of Tralee
November 05th 2015
The Rose of Tralee International Festival took place this year on the 14th - 18th of August. The festival week is definitely the busiest week of the year in Tralee and Jigsaw Kerry was right in the middle of it. Trek2Tralee The opening day of the festival saw last year’s winner Maria Walsh completed her Trek2Tralee (where she ran, walked and cycled from her home in Mayo to Tralee) and Jigsaw staff (Triona & Donagh) along with YAP members joined her for the final 5 and a half kilometres into Tralee, and of course got everyone together for a photo as they passed the hub! Rose of Tralee International 10K On the Sunday morning over 35 people ran the Rose of Tralee International 10k wearing Jigsaw Kerry t-shirts, this included staff, YAP members and members of the public. This was followed by a reception and light refreshments in the hub. Information about Jigsaw Kerry and our service was shown on the big screen in between musical acts like Hometown, The Riptide Movement and Hudson Taylor. On the final day of the festival members of the public were invited to attend an open day in the hub to find out more about Jigsaw. We also had a visit from some of the Roses and Escorts. Donagh and Joe (one of our YAP members) gave our visitors a presentation about the service. All in Jigsaw Kerry are delighted with how it went! Find out more about how Jigsaw Kerry can help you.
