New Special Olympics club looking for Lions

The Oakleaf Lions, a local Special Olympics team, are getting up and going later this month.

Based in County Derry, the club are hosting a 'come and try' session on Saturday, May 29 at 2.45pm in Dungiven Sports Centre and there has been a very positive response so far.
