Shannon and District Lions Club will be holding a food appeal on Friday and Saturday as they aim to help people in need this Christmas.
Up to eight volunteers will be completing two hour shifts for the Shannon Lions Club in their annual food appeal. They will be located outside Dunnes Stores in the SkyCourt Shopping Centre on Friday December 11th and Saturday December 12th for a period of ten to twelve hours.
Appeals of recent years have been “very successful,” according to Tony Walsh of the Shannon Lions Club who thanked the people of the area for their ongoing support.
He explained that all collected items will be transformed into hampers that will be distributed to people in Shannon, Sixmilebridge and Newmarket-on-Fergus that are in need.
Suitable food items will be accepted by the volunteers as part of the appeal. Cash donations have also been issued as part of their efforts.
