In 2017, as part of Lions Clubs International centenary celebrations, the club decided to award a bursary to a student in our local community school (Scoil Iosa). This annual award is designed to acknowledge and encourage voluntary work and service to the community by Scoil Íosa Transition Year students. Malahide Lions Club provide a cash award to the student judged by a panel to have demonstrated a real personal commitment and an ongoing desire to make a positive difference to the lives of others and the community. Congatulation to this year's winner DAVID CONLON who received a cash award of €250 plus an award of €750 for his nominated charity which is Malahide Tidy Towns. An engraved glass plaque was presented to David at the Transition Year Graduation Ceremony and his name will be added to the Roll of Honour displayed in Scoil Íosa. David received the award for his work with Malahide Tidy Towns and other activities in the community. Pictured below (right) is David receiving his award.
