Cashel Lions Club’s Christmas Shoe Box appeal will be completed in the Parish Centre on Friday, November 9, between 6.30 and 8 pm.

The Lions would like to fill as many boxes as possible to send to children in countries where the level of material wealth is much lower than here.

The boxes are filled with small items such as tooth brushes, toothpaste, soaps, hairbrushes, combs, notepads, colouring books, picture books, pencils, crayons, balls, hats, scarves, gloves, socks, small toys, jewellery, make-up sets, hair accessories, in fact any item that will make it a happier Christmas for children up to 15 years.

Financial assistance would also be welcome to pay for wrapping and despatch.
