Kilkenny pub, chipper and €15,000 cash raffled off to support charity
A Kilkenny businessman who has been battling cancer during the pandemic is raffling off his thriving business, home and €15,000 cash – all in an effort to raise money for a cancer charity.
Seamus Hennessy, the owner of The Spinner Bar and adjoining fast food restaurant in Kilmacow, is offering people the chance to win both, the accommodation that comes with it and he is throwing in €15,000, all of which could be yours for just €20.
He hopes to sell 40,000 tickets by the end of September when the draw will take place. The Solas Cancer Support Centre in Waterford will receive 10% of all the tickets sold.
Speaking on the website ‘Raffall’, where the competition is being hosted, Mr Hennessy said: “We are delighted to offer one lucky person the opportunity to win the fantastic prize of a Pub, Fastfood Takeaway & Living Accommodation.
“You win two full functioning profitable businesses in Lower Kilmacow, South Kilkenny, but we’re also giving £15,000 to stock the businesses or make any changes to put your own stamp on things.”
Mr Hennessy added: “Over the past 12 months we have fought the pandemic like everyone else between lockdowns and restrictions, but privately I have fought my own battle with cancer.
“Thankfully, I have come out fighting and wanting to enjoy my life more than ever. We are looking forward to moving forward with a new chapter in our lives while also giving someone the chance to start a new chapter in their life mortgage free.
“It’s a win/win all round as we are donating 10% of all tickets sold to the Waterford Solas Cancer Support Centre.
“For us though now is the time to begin the next chapter and bid farewell to the Pub & Fast-food business that we have built and pass it onto one lucky winner,” Mr Hennessy concluded.
