Moor Park Lions Exceed Charitable Donations of £1,000,000 after Record Musical Evening

London, 1st November 2014

The Lions Club of Moor Park, now in its 14th year, celebrated Eid and Diwali with a sell-out Musical evening (Mehfil) at the Sheraton Skyline which raised in excess of £33,000 for St Luke’s and Michel Sobell hospices.  The amount pushed the total amount raised by the club since their formation in 2001 to over £1,000,000.

“We are very proud of our achievements over the years” said Lion  Raj Vora, current president of the club, “It has been the result of a lot of hard work by our members.”

Over the years the club’s donations has supported major international charitable causes including the development of their own Paediatric centre in Gujarat, Campaign Sight First  prevent blindness in Ghana; multiple missions providing lifesaving heart surgeries to children in Mozambique, East Africa and Egypt and natural disaster appeals in Pakistan, Philippines and  Thailand.

But equally high on the agenda for the Moor Park lions has been to support the many local charities providing services in our community. Their work has provided support for new equipment at the Paul Strickland Scanner unit, the Teenage Cancer Trust, MacMillan Cancer Support unit, RNIB Sunshine School, Mountwood Surgery, and funding for multiple research units like the Harefield Heart foundation, the Northwick Park Kidney unit, Mount Vernon Cancer unit the Great Ormond St Hospital and Moorefield’s Eye Hospital.    

The club’s efforts have not gone unnoticed by the powers that be. Most members have been awarded the Melvin Jones Fellowship – the International Foundation’s highest recognition acknowledging individual dedication to humanitarian services – not once but twice!  A record unmatched by any club across Europe.

This year’s nominated charities are two hospices, St Luke’s in Kenton and Michael Sobell in Northwood, who provide a tremendous support to the families of terminally ill patients and are funded entirely by charitable donations.

The Moor Park Lions take pride in their ability to help causes providing such worthy services to the community - Long may the work continue.
