Portarlington Lions Club presenting a lathe to the Men’s Shed community group. Shane O’Neill (Lions PRO), Glen Ankers (Men’s Shed), Noel Brennan (Port Lions president), Darren Byrne (Men’s Shed co-ordinator). Willie Murphy (Lions Club zone chairman).
The valuable wood turning machine was funded by the lions club (through the community) to enable the “shedders” expand the variety of projects they can take on.
Port Mens Shed members were delighted with the generous donation, one of many made by the Lions since the shed was founded 15 months ago.
Mens Shed groups are non profit voluntary organizations, formed to offer men with time on their hands a place to work on projects, learn new skills, and most importantly enjoy some company over a cuppa.
The Port group meet up every Tuesday and Thursday at 6pm in the Alert training centre, Botley Lane.
