Lions support kids 5 a side at March meeting


The March meeting was back at the Windermere Hydro Hotel and thin on the ground where Lions were concerned because of a big wedding. But that didn’t stop Windermere and Ambleside making decisions to benefit the community.

The club has an excellent working relationship with the local Police and when PCSO Sarah Blacow approached the club for funds for a five a side tournament for local kids the club jumped at the chance. £80 was donated to provide cups and trophies to the event which is designed for young people from different local schools to create better integration between school groups.

A request was also made for the club to attend the Low Wood No Wood Cardboard Boat Race with their bouncy castle. The club hope to support the event.

This was the first meeting since the clubs Italian evening which was enjoyed by all, although there seemed to be some confusion over who the winners of the quiz were!

Also discussed was a recap on previous donations which includes £150 to a local family to help with trips to cancer care for their young son, a battery pack for electric wheelchairs used in Ambleside, mini bus hire for the Christmas tea for local elderly and money spent on firewood which is donated to those who require it.

The club continue to look forward to the Lakes Classic Car show on Sunday 22nd June.
