President's Blog - January 2022
Hello and welcome back to our website.
Although it looks at the moment as if we will have no return to normality any time soon, we as Lions were very pleased to be able to fulfil our planned activities in December. Our trolley dash in conjunction with Tesco at the beginning of the month was very successful, and then we were able to go ahead, albeit without calling at every home, with our Santa sleigh runs. With advertised times and days on social media, we had an excellent response from our community, and many people commented how they were glad to see us and considered that it was now Christmas once Santa had visited their street. This enabled us to put money into our accounts to continue with our support of the community in the many ways that we do.
Though we were unable to go ahead with our Christmas Lunch for the over 85’s, considering that they were the most vulnerable of our community, we instead were able to deliver Christmas hampers to them, delivering 86 in all, and bringing a smile to many faces.
Let us hope that we all have a peaceful and healthy new year, and that we can control and learn to live with the Covid virus, and get on with our lives.
Happy New year to you all.
Lion President John Sellers.
