Annual Lions Club Christmas Food Appeal.    


Originally back in the years this was an actual food appeal designed to help the needy in County Kildare.
Whilst support by donations in kind with food was always strong from shoppers it was decided that the targeted distribution of  "Food Only" Shopping vouchers to the needy would be more efficient. Our Club Target this year is to raise and distribute 12,000 Euros in Food Vouchers this Christmas.

Currently this vital annual Lions project runs each Christmas usually two weekends leading up to Christmas day with Lions Members with their Families & Friends Collecting Coins at the entrances to Newbridge Shopping Centre, Dunnes Stores and Tesco's Newbridge.

Our Collection Dates this year  are,

If you can donate two hours of your time to collect at these venues we would appreciate your help to fill the collection roster.

Family and Friends are all welcome to assist.

Corporate Donations to the Lions Christmas food Appeal are very welcome and if your company or Staff Social Club would like to make a donation please contact our Food Appeal Project Manager Lion Frank Burns on Email -

We would like to thank Dunnes Stores and Tesco for allowing us to run the fundraisers outside their premises at this important time of the Year.
