Tonight, RTE's Nationwide programme includes a feature on the Lions Holiday Project.
The Irish Lions Holiday Week is one of the largest service projects undertaken by Lions in Europe, if not the world. Each year, Lions Clubs throughout Ireland combine to give 900 "old and/or lonely" citizens a full week's holiday to remember.
Approximately 130 Lions or Helpers give up a week of their own holidays to look after their Guests in Trabolgan. In the spirit of Lionism, the Holiday provides these Lions and Helpers with an opportunity to renew old friendships and to make new friends from all parts of the country.
To date, over 24,000 deserving persons have been provided with a holiday at a total cost of well over €2,000,000!
The programme can be viewed here. The segment on the Lions Holiday starts about 16 minutes in.
The programme will remain available for viewing for up to 21 days from date of broadcast.
