Do you have a Lion for the Lions??

BS Lions would like to thank eveyone who supported us at our Easter Collection at Willowbrook on Saturday 8th April.  All the monies collected (with the help of the Easter Bunny!) will be used to support local needs, as not a penny of charity money is used for administrative purposes.  Collecting money to help those in need is only part of what we do.  We also give away “Messages in a Bottle” to vulnerable people on constant medication who may need the services of an ambulance crew at some point.  The bottles are stored in the fridge where the emergency services know where to look for them and they give details of the person, their health problem and the medication used.  This helps to speed the care given when needed and the right procedures can be carried out.

We are looking for a rather large lion to borrow and use as a mascot at the BS Carnival on 26th August.  We would like one as large as the rabbit pictured here.  If anyone has such a lion, we would take very good care of it – feed it, groom it, give it the occasional child to play with (only joking!).  Any offers please to Lion Robin, details below.

Some of us were up in Blackpool recently to attend our Multi-District Lions Convention.  This includes Lions members from all over England, Wales, Scotland and Ireland.  Apart from the serious business of discussing and voting on new policies, procedures and the way forward to modernise our clubs for future members, there was a Black Tie Ball to attend to let our hair down and meet up with old friends and new.

We are always ready to welcome new members into our club or even to meet those who wold like to become a friend of Lions without the commitment of full membership.  Remember, if you are interested in finding out more about the Lions, come to a meeting at the Doubletree Hilton Hotel, Woodlands Lane, on 2nd Wednesday of the month, 7.30pm start.  Or, contact President Robin on 07712 046644.
