We would like to thank Sharon Roche for very kindly donating €500.00 to the Phoenix Centre. Sharon held a fundraising head shave to help out the Open Arms Kerry (OAK) project and to remember her son Seán who died 10 years ago. Sharon raised over €4,000 for the community initiative in the area of mental health.
The donation of €500.00 will be used by the Phoenix Centre to support women in the area of mental health and wellness projects.
We would also like to thank Karen O’Donnell who delivered a workshop for the Phoenix Centre (pro bono) as part of the Kerry Mental Health and Wellness Festival. Entitled ‘Courageous Minds, Courageous Questions’, Karen discussed how to activate our higher level brain functions to get conversations back on track and move towards trusting in others.
Culture night Poetry night took place on Zoom in late September. Beautiful contributions from talented women were read and appreciated by all. The event was hosted by Máire Holmes, writer in residence. Thanks to all who participated. To ensure you do not miss any forthcoming training or events please check our face book page.
