The Bantry Bay Lions are delighted to announce the results of their Christmas Food Appeal for 2020. Thanks to the generosity of the local community enough money was raised to provide 62 food vouchers to the value of €40 each. Special thanks to SuperValu and Lidl for all their help and cooperation. Pictured is Past President Nora Lynch presenting the vouchers to Michael Healy of St Vincent De Paul. Well done everyone.
