Help Lions feed the hun­gry

The Peterborough Evening Telegraph - - NEWS -

Lions clubs from Peter­bor­ough, Whit­tle­sey and the sur­round­ing ar­eas will be pro­mot­ing the char­ity’s ser­vice in the com­mu­nity as part of its cen­te­nary cel­e­bra­tions. Lions mem­bers will be in Cathe­dral Square on Satur­day, Au­gust 19 from 10am to 4pm. There will be stands and dis­plays of Lions ac­tiv­i­ties as well as: face paint­ing, chil­dren’s en­ter­tain­ment, the Palmer­ston Ukulele Band and Cam­bridgeshire ACF Corps of Drums. One of the Lions’ cen­te­nary projects is to feed the hun­gry, and the char­ity is ap­peal­ing to res­i­dents to help it make a line of tinned food around the steps of the Guild­hall.

A Lions spokes­woman said: “We would like the peo­ple of Peter­bor­ough to help by bring­ing along a tin or two of food to add to the row, the idea be­ing a lot of peo­ple do­ing a lit­tle can achieve great things. “The food bank needs other items but, as we will be out­side we need to think of the weather and hy­giene so we only want tins, so we are af­ter tinned meat, tuna/fish, fruit, rice pud­ding and sponge pud­dings. At the end of the day the food will be dis­trib­uted be­tween the food banks in the area.”
