Mr Philip Shirley has given permission to The Carrickmacross Lions Club to use this occasion to fundraise for the charities they support. One of their main charities is to provide a weekly bus to bring Alzheimer Patients to a day centre, giving their carers a rest bite for the day. It is the policy of Lions Clubs that all money donated goes to the charities and Club members cover any expenses. New members are always welcome.
