*Tony Walsh & Flan Sheedy during the recent Shannon Lions Club Christmas Food Appeal.

Shannon Lions Club have distributed the goods raised from their Christmas Food Appeal.

25 hampers were put together following donations from the public at Shannon Town Centre. Two houses were supplied with coal and briquettes while a total of fifty Dunnes Stores food vouchers worth €50 each were also distributed.

Food hampers, food vouchers and the coal were all given to households within Shannon, Sixmilebridge and Newmarket-on-Fergus.

President of Shannon Lions Club, Tony Walsh extended his appreciation to all individuals who contributed to the Christmas food appeal. “Through your generosity we were in a position to help many families either by food hampers or food vouchers”.

Walsh also voiced his gratitude to the management of Dunnes Stores for their ongoing support and outlined that this was the first year in which Iceland Store in Shannon Town Centre came on board to back their efforts.

He acknowledged that none of the items would have been collected had it not been for the voluntary efforts of personnel within the Lions Club.
