Four worthy local charities have been given a financial helping hand by members of Hinckley and Burbage Lions Club.

The Lions recently held a series of fundraising events, including a very successful Casino Evening at Hinckley Rugby Club and decided to hand over cheques of £400 each to a quartet of groups they felt provided a great service to the Hinckley area.

Club treasurer Mike Hanson went along to present a cheque to Pam Kaur of Coping For Cancer,

as well as one to Lawrence House run by the Hinckley Homeless Group.

A further £400 was handed over to the Salvation Army who will be putting this to good use for their community restaurant and one to the Women’s Refuge in the town.

Hinckley and Burbage Lions Club president Jackie Parratt said: ‘We were delighted that our latest successful fundraising activities meant that we were able to hand over such large sums and we have already received thank you letters from all concerned to say how much it was appreciated.

‘I would just like to thank all of the members of the public who came along to our events and made them such a success.’

Hinckley and Burbage Lions Club members were hard at work in Tesco last week helping to boost the Marie Curie  fund.

During the course of a recent Friday, the group filled several collecting tins  and handed out the distinctive yellow daffodil badges to generous customers at the leading Hinckley store.

Club President Jackie Parratt said: ‘We were only too happy to help this very worthwhile charity as we have done for  several years.

The generosity of the Tesco customers meant that we could hand over almost £400, to help support the work of Marie Curie.’
