Eist Cancer Support Centre Carlow need help with their upcoming fundraiser

The Eist Cancer Support centre in Carlow is looking for your help with an upcoming fundraiser.

They’ve just launched their “Help us climb a mountain” event which takes place later in July.

Reverend Peter Tarleton, the Church of Ireland rector for Killeshin will climb mount Kenya, the second highest mountain in Africa – along with a group of others.

The fundraiser is asking people to sponsor a metre of the climb, with all money raised going to Eist Cancer Support Centre in Carlow.

Speaking to KCLR, Mary Smyth from Eist says Reverend Peter is doing the climb to celebrate his 70th birthday.
