La Cala de Mijas Lions Club award Jack McDonnell after they raise over 1000 euros together for the local community.

When Jack McDonnell had put together a football event, to raise money for Charity, he approached the Lions Club of La Cala de Mijas to help him achieve his dream. He had chosen them because of all the wonderful work they do for the local Community and he knew the money would go to a good cause.

With the help of the Club and the Town Hall the event raised over 1000 euros and the Lions recently presented Jack with a certificate of appreciation for all his hard work and as proof of what he had done for his university degree. What an inspiring young man he is.

Jack and the Lions symbolise what working for our local community can achieve.  Helping others to help themselves and looking out for each other is something that we all can do. We are all amazed at how much suffering is on our own doorstep. Jack is a beacon of hope that there are still young people out there who do care about their local community and want to give something back. What a wonderful community we have here.
