What We Do

Below are just some of the initiatives that
the Bray Lions Club are involved in ...

Better Bray Challenge

This project marked the 25th Anniversary of Bray Lions Club and had the objective of enhancing the Bray Community by inviting businesses, voluntary organisations, sports clubs, public bodies and other groups to set themselves a goal for the period May 2012 to March 2013. When such a significant number of participants achieved their goals , the cumulative impact on the Bray Community was most positive.

The endeavours of all participants were recognised by Bray Lions Club at a 'Better Bray Celebration Day' held in May 2013.

Bray Clean Sweep

Bray Lions Club have been running this project since 2005. Boys and girls from St. Cronan's and St. Patrick's Schools are encouraged to volunteer to help make Bray a cleaner place by collecting litter from the streets of Bray with Bray Lions Club members. The Bray Sea Scouts take part in this event by cleaning the River Dargle. Over the past few years, nearly 10 tonnes of litter has been collected from around the town.

District Governor's Spouse's Appeal

Each year, the District Governor's Spouse launches an appeal for his/her chosen charity and Bray Lions Club supports this appeal.

GAA Team Jerseys

In 2005, to express their gratitude for the help that the boys in St. Cronan's School have given to many of the Lions Club's projects, the club sponsored the GAA (Gaelic Football and Hurling) kit for the school.

School Books for Liberia

Bray Lions Club responds to international causes when the need arises. In October 2006, with the help of the young volunteers of the PAWS Project filled a conatiner of school books and shipped it to Liberia due to an appeal made by the Irish Army.

Windows On The World

Windows On The World was a project that Bray Lions Club initiated in 2010. It involved pairing up many local Primary Schools with different International Embassies.

Ambassadors from the different countries visited the various schools, and the school-children then prepared projects to be displayed in local shop windows as part of the St. Patrick's Day Festivities in Bray.
