Ormskirk and Maghull Lions

Sporting Challenge were set up in 2008, they support adults with disabilities to take part in sports and social activities with staff support which gives their families a break.

The Ormskirk and Maghull Lions have kindly awarded the group £100 to help fund their sessions.

Edward McCarthy: “I would like to thank the Ormskirk and Maghull Lions for their generous funding award.”

Lions meet the needs of local communities and the world every day because they share a core belief – to serve their community. Founded in 1917, they are best known for fighting blindness, but we also volunteer for many different kinds of community projects – including caring for the environment, feeding the hungry and aiding seniors and the disabled.

Lions award grants. Since 1968, the Lions Clubs International Foundation (LCIF) has awarded more than US$700 million in grants to support Lions humanitarian projects around the world.

Lions help during disasters. Together, our Foundation and Lions are helping communities following natural disasters by providing for immediate needs such as food, water, clothing and medical supplies – and aiding in long-term reconstruction.
