WELLESBOURNE AND DISTRICT LIONS CLUB :

December 2020

SANTA’S VIRTUAL VISIT TO OUR VILLAGES
DECEMBER 2020

This year, Santa needs to “elf-isolate” in his grotto, to ensure he can come to everyone at Christmas.

The Lions have had a chat with Santa and, sadly, we think it would be safer for him not to take his sleigh round our villages with the Lions this year. Instead, Santa will be sending out greetings direct from his grotto.

The Lions will broadcast Santa’s message to you all just before Christmas via the Lions Facebook page.

To help the Lions with their good works in the community, please consider making a donation to our funds so we can carry on supporting people during this difficult time.

All you need to do is: Make a donation in our virtual bucket: www.justgiving.com/campaign/WellesbourneLionsSanta

Follow the Wellesbourne Lions’ Facebook page to see when Santa’s greeting will be live (and to keep up to date with other Lions’ activities in the community):

Any money donated will be shared with local organisations who support our villages throughout the year, so please give generously.

For more information, including alternative ways to donate (online banking, cheques) please email us at santa@wellesbourne-lions.org.uk or visit our webpage http://www.wellesbourne-lions.org.uk/Santa.html

Or, you can call us on 01789 841730 to find out how to donate a cheque or cash..

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!


COME AND JOIN US

We are always looking for additional Lions members from the local area: Wellesbourne, Kineton, Lighthorne, Ettington, Barford and all the surrounding villages.

Why not come along as a guest to one of our Club meetings where we discuss our plans and have a drink with friends. If you like what you see and hear, we would be delighted to have you join us as a new member.

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
