Giving back to celebrate 60 years

As you may know Graepels is celebrating its 60th anniversary this coming November

Running up to the 60th we wish to acknowledge and capture the story of Graepels over the last number of years. As 60 is such a huge milestone we would like to celebrate it accordingly. This year is our chance to help make a difference and give back to the community. Therefor among other things Graepels will be sponsoring the Kinsale Lions Club Annual Golf Classic this year. All proceeds go to the Lions Club local charities.

Kinsale Lions Club

Kinsale Lions was formed and given its International Lions Club charter in 1991. The membership is made of local people from Kinsale and District and is an entirely voluntary club with no paid officials or employees. Kinsale Lions Club currently have 45 male and female members and actively encourage new membership. Funds are raised through projects arranged and run by members such as the Lions Walking Festival, Golf Classic, Winter Quiz, Christmas Swim, Concerts and many more events.

The club have a strong relationship with the Kinsale Community School and provide help with the TY projects and an annual bursary to help children who need extra resources to further their education or well-being. Kinsale Lions Club are twinned with Delden Lions Club in the Netherlands and in 2020 will launch a joint International Charity project with them to coincide with a visit to them.
