Dun Laoghaire Lions Club is fundraising to provide a serenity and therapy garden at the National Rehabilitation Hospital in Dun Laoghaire. An auction – which raised thousands of euro – was held in the Graduate on October 20th 2017. The then President of Dun Laoghaire Lions Club Maureen Gibson said that the success of the auction was “amazing and far beyond what I had hoped for. It certainly gives us a good kick start on what will be a long road of fundraising ahead.” Fundraising as 2018 ends is well advanced. It is expected that the financial target will be achieved early next year.
