The Charities & Sponsors
All of the funds raised will go directly to Cork Lions Club projects, the Mercy Cancer CARE Centre at the Mercy University Hospital and the Fort Meagher Restoration Fund.
We raise funds which impact on the lives of the 100,000 patients treated at the Mercy University Hospital every year. The new Mercy Cancer CARE Centre will provide a quiet, safe place for patients and families to help them deal with their cancer diagnosis or to receive ongoing support during their cancer journey through one-to-one support, peer-group sessions and bereavement counselling in a non-clinical and relaxed environment.
Lions Clubs of Cork
Irish Lions are members of Lions Clubs International, a community service organisation dedicated Lions Club Logo to the idea that the men and women who live in a community are in the best position to know who needs help and why. Our association is both non-political and non-sectarian. Clubs around the island of Ireland organise events throughout the year to provide funds to support local people on national and international projects. Because we’re local, we can serve the unique needs of the communities we live in. If you want to find out more about Lions Clubs just click here.
