ASHBOURNE civic-minded townsfolk are being invited to make a difference to their community.
The Ashbourne and District Lions Club is actively looking for new members.
Lions Clubs International is the largest service club organization in the world.
Its 1.35 million members in more than 46,000 clubs are serving communities in 207 countries and geographical areas around the globe.
Since 1917, Lions clubs have aided the blind and visually impaired, championed youth initiatives and strengthened local communities through hands-on service and humanitarian projects.
The Ashbourne club is hosting an information session at 8pm on Monday, January 20 at the Ex Servicemen’s Club in the market place, for people who want to learn more about the club and its work.
Club President Gordon Hart said: “Our club gives members an opportunity to advance worthy causes, serve with friends, and become leaders in the community.
“This club means a lot to our Lions, but it means so much more to the people we serve,”
“We want to share the great things we’re doing in the community, and let others know how they can help.
“The Lions’ motto is ‘We Serve,’ and the Ashbourne and District Lions Club has lived up to it.
“For 27 years, since it was founded in 1985 the club has raised over £290,000 for local and international charities and helped to provide emergency relief around the world.”
