The Christmas Appeal Marathon Walk was held on 5/6th Dec. Each year Malahide Lions appeal for funds to buy food vouchers for the less fortunate in our community. To create awareness of the appeal, three Lions, Malahide Lions President Bernadette Murray, Sheilagh McGirl and Stephen McDonagh walked 43km each over the two days. Lions members and their families did loops of Malahide Village totalling 130km. Our cyclists did 100km each on the Sat. Our main stand was in Malahide village and having a card machine helped enormously. All of this was to raise much needed funds to support the many struggling families in Malahide and to help them have a happy Christmas. We were blessed by fine cold weather.The Malahide community did not disappoint. We are overwhelmed by their generosity and wish to thank all the sponsors and every one who donated. We are very grateful to Al Foran for his hilarious celebrity video which helped to get the Christmas campaign off to a flying start. Check it out on our Malahide Lions Facebook Page. Donations can be made anytime via ‘Donate’ on the website malahidelions.com.
