Enniscorthy Lions Club showcased its charitable nature when it presented cheques to two very worthy local organisations.

The club's President, Eric Barron, told this newspaper that €1,200 was presented to the St Vincent de Paul organisation while €800 was presented to the Irish Pilgrimage Trust.

Mr Barron said the club was delighted to be able to help both organisations which he described as being 'very worthy recipients'.

The money for the SVP was raised through a Christmas food appeal organised jointly between the two organisations.

'The Irish Pilgrimage Trust is a voluntary led organisation that does great work bringing people to Lourdes every year,' said Mr Barron.
