About US

Serving Our Community

This is where to find out about the services we can provide, including support to other community organisations.

Our Favorite Causes

Most of our activities involve fundraising and giving the money to individuals in need or to larger causes.

How do we do it, how much do we raise and where does it go?

Thanks to everyone who participated in the Navan Lions’ Indigenous Film night on Saturday, May 4th in St. Mary’s Hall. In support of Indigenous causes the Navan Lions invited the community enjoy the film and music of Gord Downie, snack on some indigenous food and learn more about the residential schools and how to participate in reconciliation. Proceeds raised went to the Gord Downie and Chanie Wenjack Fund.
