Roscrea Lions Club, through your generosity, has always helped families in need at Christmas by ensuring they received food hampers or vouchers.  Now, more than ever, people need your help.  This year our fundraising has been curtailed due to Covid 19 restrictions so public support is desperately needed your support for our online Christmas raffle on our Idonate fundraising page.
