WHAT IS THE CLUB DOING TO SUPPORT OUR LOCAL COMMUNITY IN THE CURRENT PANDEMIC?

The club has made three donations to local groups who are providing support to our local communities in these exceptional times.  The club applied for and received a share of £100,000 from the Lions Clubs Foundation of the British Isles, a special fund launched to support local communities during the COVID-19 crisis.  In its application the club said it would match-fund any grant so £600 very quickly became £1200.

The local groups who have each received £400 are the Glastonbury Foodbank, the Street Foodbank and Street Baptist Church Meals on Wheels service.

Our President Lion Brenda Wood said: “This is a significant sum of money that we are putting to good use straightaway. This Coronavirus pandemic is hurting lots of local people in lots of different ways - just because we are all social distancing doesn’t stop us from caring and providing support to those helping our community”.

Like many clubs, associations, groups and organisations we have ceased any activities directly interfacing with other residents.  We are supporting our immediate families, many of whom are vulnerable as are some of our own members, but we are open to requests for help.

We can still be contacted via either 0345 833 6714 or via e-mail liondatkins@btinternet.com.

Our Message in a Bottle and Message in a Wallet project is still very much to the forefront of providing help and support to the vulnerable in our community – see projects page.
