Glanford & Lindsey Lions Club

July 2019

Without YOUR help we would not be able to assist the worthy causes we do; so a huge THANK YOU for the support you give us.

HEALTH TREE FOUNDATION – MATERNITY BEREAVEMENT SUITE

We have recently contributed towards the development of the Maternity Bereavement Suite at Scunthorpe Hospital. It is hoped that this will bring a little comfort to families during these sad occasions and times of need.  

CHARITY GOLF DAY

Again this year we held our Charity Golf Day at the Holme Hall Golf Club, this has enabled us to make significant donations to Headway who are a charity supporting families with mental health issues.

ST HUGH’s SCHOOL

At the school fun day we provided some outdoor games for the children to participate in which they all seemed to enjoy and have fun.

SHOWS & FETES

We again had successful days at the Lincolnshire Show, Messingham Show, Scawby Village Fete and Kirton Gala with the weather being kind for us on the show days. If you attended any of these events I hope you came along and said ‘Hello’.

SCOTTER JUNIORS FOOTBALL CLUB

This year we sponsored two teams from Scotter in the Lions Football Competition at Retford and I pleased to say one of the teams came away with the Shield.

LIONS COMMUNITY SERVICES PROVIDED

We continue to provide Message in a Wallet, Message in a Bottle and Plugsters, Trauma Lions for the Scunthorpe Hospital and the collection of Spectacles and Hearing Aids for recycling. If you would like further information on any of the services please don’t hesitate in contacting a member of Glanford & Lindsey Lions Club.

NEW CLUB PRESIDENT

In the Lions calendar July brings in a new Club President and this year Glanford and Lindsey Lions Club have endorsed Lion Ray Pullinger as their new President. At the Hand-Over Dinner last year’s President Lion Dr Chris Young-Woolley thanked all the members for their contributions to another successful year and made reference to the many charitable organisations, as well as individual needs, that have benefited from the work of the Lions.

EAST MIDLANDS PHOENIX INTERNET CLUB BRANCH

The official formation of the Internet Club took place in June. This type of Club is specifically design for flexibility and accommodates those members who struggle to attend our business meetings, the Skype meeting take place once per month (1st Monday) and last no more than one hour. If anyone is interested in taking part please contact any member of Glanford & Lindsey Lions Club.

CPR TRAINING

Again this year, in partnership with LIVES responders, we have facilitated training for year 6 Primary School pupils to receive basic CPR. Hopefully this will give them a greater knowledge and confidence in administrating CPR and an understand the meaning of ‘DRs ABC’.

CARING FOR YOUR COMMUNITY

Raising funds enables us to continue our commitment in serving the communities in which we live. Caring for Your Community is our key objective. Glanford and Lindsey Lions Club provide, through our various activities, support where it is needed and we will continue to support groups and individuals who deserve and require help. Remember where there’s a Need there’s a Lion.
