Waterford Lions Club call on the public to support Christmas Hamper Appeal

Waterford Lions Club is calling on the public to support their annual Christmas Hamper Appeal.

This Christmas marks the club’s 40th year involved with the appeal and it aims to raise €60,000 for families in need.

The club was delighted to have mayor of the Metropolitan District Cllr Joe Kelly, deputy mayor of Waterford City and County Council Cllr John O'Leary, and former Waterford senior hurling manager Derek McGrath at the appeal’s recent launch in the Tower Hotel.
