New head Lion appointed for group
A NEW president for Macclesfield and District Lions Club has been appointed.
The charity held its handover and annual dinner at the Hollin Hall Hotel in Kerridge, where members meet twice monthly.
Christopher Oatway handed the president’s chain to Tony Norton from Poynton, whose first official engagement was the club’s Lions Youth Brass Band concert at King’s School.
Macclesfield and District Lions Club serves the community through organisation and participation at local events and donates more than £20,000 a year to good causes in Macclesfield.
Christopher, who is now secretary, said: “If you’re interested in serving your community as a volunteer as well as socialising and organising events, get in touch.”
Call Chris on 07873 485265.
Middlewood Riding for the Disabled, East Cheshire Hospice, Bosley Disaster Appeal, Mary Sunley Canal Boat Charity, Lions Youth Brass and Girlguilding Bollington were among those to get grants this year.
Upcoming events include Bollington Bikefest on September 3 and Lions Swimarathon on November 19.
