Lions Clubs supporting communities during COVID-19 crisis

The Marlborough & District Lions Club has received a share of £100,000 from the Lions Clubs Foundation of the British Isles from a fund launched to support local communities during the COVID-19 crisis.

The club has received a grant of £1,000 and has matched this with a further £1,000 from its club funds. This donation of £2,000 will be used by the Community Volunteer Help scheme (co-ordinated by Marlborough Town Council). The Volunteers help those who need assistance with shopping, collection of prescriptions, walking the dog and a friendly voice.  As well as needing funds for shopping for those who are most needy, the volunteers need some PPE equipment such as masks and gloves and hand sanitizer to keep them safe. 

The Club President, Richard Yates said: “This is a significant sum of money that we are putting to good use straightaway”. 

When a humanitarian crisis strikes, the Lions Clubs Foundation of the British Isles and Local Lions Clubs work together and are guided by their own Lions members who are ordinary people actively working at the heart of their communities.
