Kerry Group employees in Millennium Park, Naas, raised funds for the Irish Cancer Society last week and presented a cheque for 1,400 to the charity.

Workers took the cause to their heart and held a cake sale over two days, a DVD and book bring and buy along with many other simple initiatives such as auctioning a carparking space for a year.

The Kerry Group sponsored a day’s holiday and, organisers say, a huge amount of fun was had in the bidding for this.

Also auctioned were three framed photos of Jamie Heaslip, Rory McIlroy and Roy Keane donated by local photographer Michael Crean.
