WELLESBOURNE AND DISTRICT LIONS CLUB :

April 2021

Lions are making plans - with cautious optimism

We are pleased to be able to tell you that we raised £205 with our Valentine’s Day collection at Wellesbourne Co-op. On a very cold day, several hardy Lions together with Clarence, our mascot, stood outside shaking some socially distanced buckets. Many thanks to the Co-op for making this possible and to everyone who contributed.

As promised, we are making plans for our fundraising this year, with no absolute guarantees when certain activities will be permitted, we are erring on the side of caution for the next few months:

In May we will be asking families to get creative in the kitchen with a ‘virtual bake off’ challenge to make a baked item in the form of a lion; more details will be available in newsletters next month and on our website and Facebook pages.

For July we are planning walking treasure hunts for each of the major villages in our area.

We will be announcing the winners of the Easter Egg Nest competition in May newsletters (still time to enter if you are reading this before 5pm on 3rd April!)

Throughout 2021 we will be running a campaign to raise funds for local Guiding groups through our Just Giving page where you can also find more information : https://www.justgiving.com/campaign/wellesbournelions2021in2021. We will be publishing updates on this initiative throughout the year.

To find out more about any of our work or how you can get involved please email:

Please help the Lions continue to help the people of Wellesbourne, Ettington, Combrook, Moreton Morrell, Lighthorne, Kineton, Barford, Hampton Lucy, Charlecote and all communities in between. Something we have been doing for nearly 50 years!

Whoooo! We have a winner!

We had a super selection of spooktacular entries to our first Halloween Scary Scarecrow Competition! The competition attracted a total of 39 photo entries which were posted on our Facebook page and the winner was chosen by the number of ‘likes’ for each entry.

The winner was ‘Boris de Frankenstein’, the crazed creation of Dave and Carmel Coleman from Barford. Honourable mentions also go out to ‘The Scarecrow Eater’ by Charlie and Willow Holtom, ‘Morose Maurice’ by The Skinners and ‘Woodcutter’ by Katy Field (all 3 entries from Wellesbourne).

We raised an amazing £343.75 from entry fees and donations on our JustGiving page and all monies raised will go towards supporting local charities.

Many thanks to the Co-Op for donating a £30 gift voucher for the winner and to everyone who took part. We can’t wait for next year!

We are delighted to let you know about a recent donation from the Lions Clubs International Fund Lions Clubs’ £160k boost for local air ambulances

Air ambulances across the British Isles will receive vital equipment in the battle against COVID-19 – thanks to generous £160,000 grant from the Lions Clubs International Foundation.

Working with Air Ambulances UK, Lions Clubs compiled a list of equipment and supplies needed by individual air ambulance charities – totalling £161,468. The equipment and supplies they requested, which has been funded by the Lions Clubs International Foundation grant, include isolation capsules and decontamination units, separation screens, PPE, ventilators, respirators and hoods, a thermal screening camera and monitoring system, compression devices, fluid warmers, an ultrasound cardiac probe, and mobile connectivity devices.

As well as their ‘day job’ - responding to accidents, traumatic incidents and medical emergencies - air ambulances are supporting the COVID-19 response to help reduce the huge burden on the NHS and other public services.

Heather Benjamin, Chair of Air Ambulances, UK said: “The donation of equipment and supplies by Lions helps air ambulance charities to support the COVID-19 response and their communities in these extraordinary times and beyond.”

President of Wellesbourne & District Lions Club, Heather Brown, says: “We know that air ambulance charities have been busier than ever during the coronavirus pandemic. They’ve faced considerable extra unbudgeted day to day costs at the same time as lockdown has affected fund-raising. Now, thanks to an emergency COVID-19 relief grant from the Lions Clubs International Foundation in the US, we can provide immediate support for this emergency service that touches lives in all our local communities.”

Local Lions have continued to support their communities facing difficulties due to COVID-19. This latest boost for air ambulance charities comes on top of £140,000 awarded in grants to foodbanks and other causes nominated by Lions clubs across the British Isles. If you are interested in supporting your local Lions group by volunteering with us then please contact President Heather Brown on 01789 941419 or to make a donation go to: https://www.justgiving.com/wellesbournedistrict-lionsclubs
