Not all heroes wear capes but Lions Clubs are helping to make sure our heroes wear shields.

Cork Lions Club are proudly following the lead of Macroom Lions with the Hero Shield Project.  With support from our fellow Lions in Bantry, Bishopstown, Carrigaline, Clonakilty, Cork, Douglas, Kinsale, Cobh Macroom and Skibereen all giving €1,000 each.  We have raised €10,000 and we hope we can get other clubs across Ireland to follow suit.

A sample of our HSE/NHS Covid 19 Team approved EU Standard PPE was sent to Dr Rachel Wright of Newtownbutler GP Surgery, here is what she said:

"Not a great photo of me but the face shield is great.  Tried it out today in Newtownbutler GP Surgery.  Thanks Rachel".

Cork Lions donation to Scoil Bernadette

Corl Lions Donation

Cork Lions Club were pleased recently to donate the sum of €1,500 to the school, some of which was used for the purchase of a video projector for a new prefab classroom that has recently been constructed to cater for the students and staff while the balance was used to purchase additional samba drums for the school's samba band. 

Corl Lions Donation

Activities such as the samba band prove to be very beneficial to the students. The samba band recently participated in the youth climate activities in Cork city centre which attracted huge numbers of students.

Interested in knowing more about Cork Lions Club?

Cork Lions Club have put together a leaflet in an attempt to convey who we are and what we are about. We have asked members to explain what being a Lion means to them and some of the recipients of Lions donation meant to them.
