Donations - Lionistic Year 2017/18

 
We had another successful year, under the presidency of Lion Jeff Hartley. Below is a list of the work carried out and the donations that we made to Local charitable causes as well as National and International.
 
As usual we carried out our annual Christmas Caring Toy Appeal.  The Lions gave gifts to 973 young people which was more in line with our normal numbers after a record high of 1299 the previous year. 

We continued to broadcast our music programs on our radio channel at Royal Bolton Hospital on a daily basis, including playing Patient's requests on Sunday morning. We also continued to support the Message in a Bottle scheme.

We held our usual Christmas Party for the Housebound at Drummond Street Centre.

We carried out collections for Marie Curie.
