Sale and District Lions Support Café in the Park
Sale and District Lions Club are proud to support Café in the Park.
Sale and District Lions club recently donated £500 to our community Café for which we are very thankful. Here, Linda Creswell tells us more about the good work of the club and why they need new volunteers to join their efforts. Please do contact them if you can offer support.
We have been serving Sale and the surrounding district since 1971.Through Lions Clubs International we have links across the world to 1.4 million fellow Lions. We take pride in not spending money collected from the public on administration, and costs are paid for out of our subscriptions. The money we collect from the public goes to the good causes we decide on. Providing service is the cornerstone to all that we do at local, national and international level. Because we are local, we serve the unique needs of the communities in which we live. As we are global, we can address community challenges wherever they occur: “where there’s a need there’s a lion”.
Every year we serve our local community, for example:
by putting on a popular Father’s Day fete in Worthington Park
in partnership with Life Church we hold a Christmas lunch for Senior citizens
we recently bought a gazebo for the garden of the Burns Unit at Wythenshawe Hospital
we provided hampers of Christmas goodies to be distributed to families in need by social services and shoe boxes of Christmas gifts for homeless people in Greater Manchester
provided racing wheelchair equipment for local Paralympian Carly Tait
funded a ball pool in a sensory room at a local school
paid for play equipment in Styal prison nursery
donated to “the Ticker Club” and to the ECMO unit at Wythenshawe hospital.
Internationally we have donated to:
Lions International Eye Centre in Ghana which is providing training for eye specialists and eyecare for a large region
disaster relief for hurricane and earthquake hit areas.
Donations from clubs around the world are coordinated by LCIF and routed through local Lions Clubs after they tell us what is needed.
You would be wrong to assume that it is all hard work! Lions benefit by sharing fellowship, friendship and laughter. All the clubs are non-political and non-sectarian. We enjoy socials and although putting on the fete and lunch are hard work we have a lot of fun too. Helping others is really rewarding and if you have problems you tend to forget them.
