Well, another year begins and Peterborough Lions Club is STILL unable to hold physical meetings; thank goodness for Zoom!
As you can see below, we were forced to curtail Santa’s visits before Christmas, so our fund raising has been limited. We have NOT, though, been inactive, in spite of Coronavirus restrictions.
We have made, and continue to make, monthly donations of food and long shelf-life drinks to the PETERBOROUGH FOOD BANK – this is food donated by Lions club members. Amounts vary by month, eg September 35 kg, October 60kg, November 48kg, December 103kg, Jan 2021 35kg; donations earlier in the year were made but not recorded.
We have also supplied:
“MARY’S CHILD” (Yaxley & Farcet Churches) with a donation towards supporting vulnerable families with food and toiletries in July.
SOUTHFIELDS SCHOOL PTA with a donation towards food hampers for needy families. Made in December
The club have, in our February meeting, agreed to supply the LIGHT HOUSE PROJECT, Peterborough with a donation towards refreshments for visitors to the Garden House (Homeless support hub). This, along with two packs of coffee will be delivered later in the month.
