WHISTLES for Refugees, a charity that helps the most vulnerable people who have been displaced from their homes, will hold its first fundraising event tomorrow night.
The Stella Maris Hotel in Kilkee will host a night of live bands, poetry, fire performers and few surprises thrown in for good measure.
Whistles for Refugees collected sleeping bags and tents from festivals around the country this summer and are currently trying to organise a truck to bring the supplies to Syria.
It is hoped the sleeping bags will help give the Syrian people a little more comfort in the winter months ahead.
The event itself is free, but the event organisers are hoping the revellers will donate to this worthy cause.
Whistles for Refugees will also raffle a painting worth €1000 on the night.
Friday night’s performers include Sean Kerin and friends, Cillian Mac Donnchadha, Lou McMahon, Louise O’Flanagan, Qoyllurit’, Kirsten Allstaff & Friends, Pip Sides and Astrid Adler.
