Dun Laoghaire Lions are committed to serving the community in ways that promote improvements in our five global causes :Diabetes, environment , hunger relief, pediatric cancer and human vision.
This is the Lions Global Service Framework
We translate this Framework to services for the community at Christmas time and when requested through the year.
By supporting our fundraising ensures that the club is able to serve when requested. Our commitment is to promote knowledge on health issues like diabetes which allow a positive way to extend lifespan for all who will listen.
Serving the community requires us to fund raise.

What happens to the money raised?
Our biggest fund raising event of the year is the annual House to House collection.
Over 80% of the money coleced in that appeal goes back into the Christmas hampers and vouchers supplied to the 500 plus families and indviduals who need help at Christmas time.
The remainder of the money goes on supporting people with unexpected crisis, like changes in family cicumstance and living conditions.
Lions Club Members pay annual dues and do internal fund raising to ensure that all external money colleceted goes back in supporting the Services that we offer.
