We also facilitate a Wig Clinic & HSE Bra & Prosthesis fitting service.

As a registered charity providing free support services, a minimum of €200,000 – or 50% – of our annual operating costs must be sourced through fundraising activities. Without this fundraising income, including the support of the Ring of Kerry Charity Cycle, we simply could not continue to maintain our services or develop new initiatives to meet the changing and evolving needs of our clients.

To the end of October 2023, we have had 331 new clients registered. This represents a 32% increase on last year and we predict that at least 400 new clients will have registered with our service by the end of 2023- an overall increase of 32%, with an average of 32 new clients registering per month.
