Bradley Stoke Lions donation in Remembrance of Past President Robin Young

President Michael and Lion Ailsa visited the Great Western Air Ambulance’s new Operational Base at Almondsbury recently to present them with a cheque for £1,030.35.  This amount included £780.35 raised at Past President Robin Young’s funeral and a further cheque for £250 donated by Bradley Stoke Lions in remembrance of Robin.  Thank you to all who donated money in lieu of flowers – Robin would have been so humbled by this response and so pleased that it went to such a worth while charity.  It is hard to believe, when you recognise the amazing work the Air Ambulance does for our communities, that this is still a charity depending on people’s good will to donate.  Our thanks to Joe Hughes, their Community Fundraising Coordinator who showed us round the new base and introduced us to some of the crew just before they flew off on yet another mission.

Sadly we bid goodbye to another Lion, Frederic and his wife Xiying and daughter Sophie as they set off for Japan where Frederic’s work will take him for the next few years.  We wish them well and hope they enjoy Japan.
