Support Lions by buying a Christmas cake or two
The local Lions Club is busy in the local community in a variety of ways.
It arranged for the learners of the Kroonvale, Lingcom and Narsingstraat primary schools to express their ideas on the Peace Poster theme “Kindness Matters” with the help of Lions’ friend, Kay Coetzee.
Deon Bantom of Kroonvale Primary School won a Lions District 410D award with his poster.
To help raise awareness on International Diabetes Day on 14 November Lions organised free testing at Clicks by volunteer nursing sister friends, Brenda Pringle, Shirley Davids, Jenny Matthews, Liz Savage and Johanna Davids.
Lions extend their thanks to them. In total, 85 people had their blood pressure and blood glucose tested and where needed were referred for further medical intervention.
At the St James Fair this weekend, Lions will be selling their traditional Christmas cakes for R100. For each cake sold, the Lions Club makes R24 which goes to funding other activities like the Buddies Day in early 2019 for disabled children.
Lions will also be encouraging donations for trees at the Fair R30 per tree. Boundless grows the boerboon trees which Lions then buys and donates to areas where trees are needed. In the last four years, about 300 trees have been planted in Asherville and Mandela Park and are doing well.
On 20 December, Lions will be taking presents to patients at the Midland Hospital, and staff and patients will join the club members in singing Christmas carols.
Phone 060 318 4492 to join them and to support Lions.
