Peterborough Lions are pleased to have established a new relationship through which we have been able to add over 30 new shops and other retailers to www.lions-share.org.uk, allowing you to buy from them and contribute to charity at the same time, without costing you a penny extra!
Well Hung Meat
Included in the list of additions are computer and memory card retailers such as Misco, Crucial and Memory Bits, gardening suppliers like Suttons Seeds and Hayloft Plants; The Book People and The Works for the bookworms out there, as well as Green & Blacks and Amelie Chocolat for the chocoholics who are still hungry after Easter! Then there’s mySupermarket, who will find you the cheapest online shop amongst Tesco, Asda, Sainsbury’s etc for your weekly shop, Chemist.net and Chemist-4U for your pharmaceutical supplies (a great way to stock up on antihistamines in case summer ever graces us with its presence), several gift suppliers including novelties like Marmite and myMousemat, and even quality foods from the online butcher Well Hung Meat.
If you haven’t taken a look at Lions’ Share yet – and especially if you’re already a regular user – check out the new ways to support Peterborough Lions Club soon!
It was nice to see Lions 105EA District Governor travelling all the way from Wymondham Lions Club to attend our September Lions Club business meeting.
Lion Jim Cawte and wife Jennifer were present for a demonstration by Lion Mark Rogers of our sister website, Lions’ Share
, followed by a question and answer session about how it works and how well it is doing. We look forward to seeing it promoted across the district in coming months.
Peterborough Lions Club President Bill Peacock presented the DG with our club banner and received one of Lion Jim’s personal banners in return.
We were also given a short introduction to the DG Lady’s 2012 Appeal by Jennifer, which this year is raising money for the Teenage Cancer Trust. For those of us young enough to remember being a teenager, it’s a difficult enough time of life as it is without also having to face the enormous challenge of fighting a disease like cancer, but sadly the plight of teenagers with cancer is often overlooked. For that reason (despite it being direct competition to our own quiz leaflet
!) many club members were more than willing to buy the DG Lady’s own quiz leaflets, and the club was also proud to present a donation to the appeal to our visitors.
For more information on the DG Lady’s appeal, see the 105 EA website and the Teenage Cancer Trust website.
