Litter Picking

The club has been involved in litter picking activities since late 2021 in various locations around Bolton. The last two carried out mid 2022 have been at Crompton Way near the Health Centre, and at Sunnyside Park where we also carried out some gardening activities aided by pupils of Bolton School and some of their parents.

Market Place Shop

During the months of October, November and December the club was offered the opportunity of a free shop at Bolton Market Place. This was used to advertise Lions activities such as Message in a Bottle and the spectacles recycling scheme and provision was made for members of the public to donate used spectacles. From November onwards it was also used to promote  our Toy Appeal, and the public were able donate toys for the appeal at the shop. The shop was manned on Friday's and Saturday's by members of the club and pupils from Bolton School whose support was very much appreciated. The shop was a great success and when offered an extension from January to the end of March the club quickly took up the option. 

It was decided that there should be a theme for each month. In January it was recycling. In February it centred on Valentines day and members of the public were invited to write a message to their Valentine fo a small donation. These messages were displayed upon a heart shaped hanger. In March the theme will be based upon Green projects.   

The Lions here in Bolton have launched an appeal to support the refugee efforts related to the current crisis in #Ukraine.
They are working in partnership with International Aid Trust taking in toiletries and dried foods for their Ukraine Crisis Appeal.
The Bolton Lions shop here on the ground floor of Market Place will be open each Saturday to receive items from 10 am until 2 pm.
If you can spare any of the items requested, please drop them off at the Bolton Lions shop. You can also donate money. Thank you all so very much for your support in helping those in need.
