he latest press release from the Sugarloaf Lions Club, issued on Monday, November 23rd 2022…
Every Christmas since 1968, Sugarloaf Lions Club has collected food and money in the run up to Christmas and distributed the proceeds to local families in need in the Greystones, Delgany, Kilcoole, Newtownmountkennedy, Newcastle and Kilmacanogue areas.
Local Lions standing in the doorways of supermarkets at Christmastime beside shopping trollies laden with festive fare is a sight that most people living in our community are well familiar with.
Unfortunately, as with many other of our cherished Christmas traditions over the past three years, Covid 19 meant that we haven’t reached out to the community in this way since 2019. So, it is with great joy that we are once again able to step back out and help those facing into a particularly tough winter ahead.
Our Christmas Appeal – which runs until shortly before Christmas – is to raise the necessary funds to provide the equivalent of 200 hampers, vouchers or fuel for those in need in our community and to help them share in at least some of the joys of Christmas.
We are distributing appeal leaflets to households throughout the area and you can support our appeal by making a donation here or via our website here.
We will also be at Dunnes Stores in Newtown on Friday, December 2nd and Saturday 3rd, from 10am, and then Daly’s SuperValu in Greystones on Friday 16th and Saturday 17th.
