Clonmel Lions Club appeals for YOUR support for our Annual Christmas Food Appeal.
For many years Clonmel Lions Club, in common with Lions clubs throughout the country, has made sure that those less well off in our society are not forgotten at Christmas time. The club appeals for assistance from the community every year at this time.
This year we are making a special appeal to the people of Clonmel to come along to Tesco on Friday, 27th & Saturday 28th November and to Supervalu, Market Place, Dunnes Stores Oakville & Dunnes Stores Davis Road in Clonmel on Saturday 12th & Sunday 13th December to lend us their support for the Food Appeal.
Clonmel Lions Club President Rickie Fitzgerald said this week, “We will accept all donations of non-perishable foods for distribution in food hampers for worthy recipients carefully vetted by the Lions Club. These hampers will be delivered in good time for Christmas.”
“The Lions clubs of Ireland have an outstanding track record in collecting food for this appeal,” Rickie said, “and we can guarantee all members of the public that all food collected will go to those who simply can’t make ends meet-for reasons beyond their control”
Clonmel Lions Club would like to thank the Supermarkets for their continued support and also Clonmel Red Cross and St Vincent de Paul for their help in distribution of the hampers.
