The Lions Club of Roscrea has been distributing food parcels to the less well off in our society for over 40 years. Through collection points in our large stores the Lions volunteer 2 hours (some for 4 hours) to collect food and cash from the public. Our photograph shows a Lions packing team (with helpers) and a close up of the contents of a typical food parcel. Last year the club members delivered 200 parcels in Roscrea. The Lions would like to thank the people of Roscrea and District for their continuing generosity. Thanks also to Bernies SuperValu and Tesco who allowed the Lions to collect in their premises. This year's collection dates are Friday December 15th in Bernies and Tesco, Thursday the 21st in Bernies, and Friday 22nd December in Bernies and Tesco.
