Monthly News from the Lion President

Dec 2018/Jan 2019 

Shop-wise: Our closure over the Christmas/New Year period allowed us to undertake some much-needed shop maintenance and shelf re-stocking. We also sent our Bears on their annual 11 month holiday and, thank you for the Christmas Cards and your continued support.

Club-wise: This month we have agreed to donate towards some Lions International Projects, one in conjunction with UNICEF to provide access to water, food and healthcare in the Yemen, and, also, a project for eye screening in Indian schools

At home we presented a cheque from the 2018 Bike Ride to Chailey Heritage, agreed to assist with stonework repairs to a local grade II listed structure, fund - along with other local Lions Clubs - the annual “It's a Knockout Competition” for young adults with learning difficulties, and donate £1,000 to Breast Cancer Research at Brighton.

LASTLY:  If you have taken the time to read this, you may also have read the notice relating to new members welcome.  Why not give us a try?  A little bit of your spare time could help improve somebody's life locally.

Oct/Nov 2018

Another good month in the Book Den has enabled the club to once again commit funds to local worthy charities.

This month with the festive season on the horizon we have agreed to contribute towards the cost of helping three organisations provide a Christmas meal and entertainment for the elderly/lonely.

In addition we have agreed to improve the quality of life for a single parent family by installing basic furnishings in their accommodation. 

Looking ahead to next year's Summer Fayre, we will again be working in partnership with your Town Council to provide facilities in St John's Park for youngsters during town week.

Following the tragic loss of a local youth earlier this year we are assisting graduates from a local training centre raise money for the charity,  Young Minds.

LASTLY:  Did I see SANTA down by the Radio Station, somebody told me he's there every Saturday and Sunday. Have you seen him yet?
