Famine collection was a big success

SIR, — On behalf of Downpatrick Lions Club I would like to take this opportunity to thank the people of Downpatrick and the surrounding area for their generosity in supporting the Lions collection in aid of the African Famine Appeal on November 5.

Altogether we managed to raise £1,963 which is a fantastic figure given the downturn in the economy and the number of job losses in the area over the last year.  

When you donate to the Lions you can be assured your donation will go directly to vulnerable and disadvantaged groups and individuals. Every penny raised by Downpatrick Lions goes directly to charity and no money donated is used for administration.

Your continuing support is much appreciated. Visit our website Downpatricklions.com and contact us if you would like to learn more about the Lions.

Yours etc.,


Downpatrick Lions Club.
