Wexford Lions Club
Wexford Lions Club is a service organisation comprising of approximately 32 members. We are part of Lions international which is the largest service organisation in the World.
Wexford Lions Club members are men and women who volunteer their time to humanitarian causes in their local communities. We do so in the belief that those who live in a community are in the best position to know who needs help or support and why. This support may be monetary, such as food vouchers at Christmas for families and individuals in need, or by giving their time to assist community projects such as the clean up of Selskar Abbey in association with Wexford Tidy Towns.
Members of Wexford Lions Club adhere to the Lions motto ‘WE SERVE’. The Lions motto is not only a motto but also a philosophy.
Wexford Lions Club has served the community of Wexford since April 17th 1979.
The first President of the Club was Denis Burke and the club had 28 Charter Members.
In 2008, Wexford Lion Dave Dempsey was elected District Governor which is ‘President’ of all Lions Clubs in Ireland.
Wexford Lions Club raise funds through a variety of means. The most obvious being the traditional Church Gate Collections and Street collections or flag days. The club is constantly looking at new and innovative ways to raise funds and to give donors something in return. Fundraisers have included raffles, films, sponsored walks and Christmas card photo competitions.
Lions Clubs the world over are known for their Christmas Food Appeal but there is so much more to what we do!
