The Three Peaks Challenge

The Three Peaks Challenge – a message from Kevin

There are three mountains in beautiful Kerry (Ireland) that have crosses at the top: Cnoc na Tober, Carrauntoohil and Mt. Brandon.

As a fundraising challenge for Lebanon Trust,  our friend Kevin Boyle intends to climb to the summit of the three mountain crosses in the same day, Saturday 6th June 2020.

We all sincerely hope that this is a fundraising challenge that is worthy of your support, along with the charity that I hope to raise funds for – Lebanon Trust.

Kevin will have a small number of friends supporting him on the day, including KCC’s own Kenneth Leahy who will climb with him, and John Lynch who will provide logistical support. Kevin thanks them in advance for their time and effort, given freely.

This year Kevin will carry the Kerry flag with him to the top of the three mountains, and again when you make your donation/pledge, you will be able to nominate two names to be written on the flag, as a gesture of remembrance, spirituality and intentions for your nominated loved ones.

All the funds raised will go to Lebanon Trust’s charitable projects, to help those who can’t help themselves. We all hope you can support the effort.

Thank you in advance from Kevin and all the volunteers of Lebanon Trust.

This was our volunteer’s 12th consecutive visit to FAID, School for the Deaf, in Beirut.

We painted and renovated the Vocational Training room, where FAID’s children will be trained to become hairdressers; did many maintenance tasks at the school; cleaned up the garden and fixed and re-installed the clinic door.

At the end of our stay, we all shared chocolates & cheers with the all the children.

Thanks to our donors, we were able to help the school with

– USD 8000 for the speech therapy,
– USD 2000 for heating fuel
– and we financed the renovation work that we carried out

We look forward to next year’s visit!
