Cashel Lions Club despatched 123 Christmas shoeboxes last week to children in Eastern Europe and parts of Africa with the intention of bringing them a bit of joy and happiness this Christmas.
Under this project filled shoeboxes are sent to children in these countries where the level of material wealth is much lower than in Ireland and where the vast number of children will get nothing in the line of presents for Christmas.
The Lions co-ordinator of the project, Marie Gayson, would like to thank all the adults and children who contributed in any way to the success of the project.
She would also like to thank the businesses in the town who contributed money towards the cost of material for the shoeboxes as well as paying for the despatch of the boxes to their destinations.
Everyone involved can be happy in the thought that their contributions will be greatly appreciated by children, who receive so little and will be thrilled with what they receive.
