MEMBERS of Wexford Lions Club took part in three varied walks at the end of a summer that at times seemed like autumn had already arrived.

However, there was a little sunshine around for them to share during their walks at Curracloe through The Raven, at Forth Mountain, taking in the views from the Three Rocks and Quarry, and Tintern Abbey on the Hook Peninsula.

Throughout the weekend, walkers were supported by the Wexford Coastguard and Wexford Civil Defence.

The annual Walk for Wexford raises vital funds for Wexford Lions Club which are used to finance a number of projects in the local community including Suicide Awareness, a weekly bus to St John's Hospital and support of various community groups.

The Lions Club is unique in that its members pay an annual membership fee which covers administration costs so that all donations received are used for both current and new projects.
