WELLESBOURNE AND DISTRICT LIONS CLUB :
I hope you all had a good Easter break and are now looking forward to a nice hot summer (fingers crossed!!)
On Saturday 6th April the Lions hosted its annual free senior citizens concert with afternoon tea at Kineton High School, which was enjoyed by around eighty people. It included bingo and a free raffle with a huge number of donated prizes. Entertainment was provided by a singing duo, Paul Gunton (The minstrel) and children from ‘Intadance’. We would like to thank ‘Bring Joy Foundation’ who provided a grant that paid for much of this year’s event.
We would like to welcome you to join us at our very first Beer, Fizz, Gin and family festival at the Home Guard Club in Tiddington on Friday 31st May and Sunday 1st June, which we are jointly hosting with Shakespeare Lions. Please come along and savour our range of local ales, Gins, mixers and prosecco!! There will be a BBQ, family entertainment on Saturday afternoon and a local band playing on Saturday night. Hours are from 12 noon to 10:30pm on both days. Proceeds from the event will help support local charities, so please help us by spreading the word. We look forward to meeting you all!!
The Lions are pleased to announce that we are sponsoring a group of five local explorer scouts who are attending their Jamboree which is being held in the USA later this year. This is a wonderful opportunity for them. All of the explorers have been very busy doing their own fundraising and are well on their way to reaching their targets. We have agreed to give them each a grant of £200 to help them on their way!!
Finally this month I would like to ask you all to donate your old spectacles. Lions help with restoring eyesight for millions of people around the world. You can help us by dropping off your old spectacles to the chemists at the new doctor’s surgery in Wellesbourne, so that we can recycle them and donate them to people who have no hope of paying for their own lenses.
