Certificates of Appreciation
Lions of Newbury are delighted to be able to present individuals and organisations within West Berkshire certificates to recognise their service to the community during the Pandemic.
Over the next few days we shall be out and about saying thank you to these people for their support in our community since Lockdown
Our first certificate was presented by President Judith Colby yesterday to Joyce Lewis for her befriending phonecalls she has made since the beginning of Lockdown, ensuring many elderly citizens did not feel alone and acting on any needs requested. Thank you Joyce!
Newbury Lions wish everyone a Merry Christmas and hope our Facebook page for December will bring some good cheer!
A while back we were asked to support the World Literacy Foundation with a project called UK Reads which aims to get childrens books into every household across the country.
Certificates of Appreciation will be going to various individuals and organisations who have supported the community since Lockdown
Along with everyone else, Newbury Lions Club have found it difficult to raise money during the Covid-19 lockdown. The local District Council had swiftly set up a support hub that has operated efficiently during the crisis, with Lions registering individually as volunteers. Lion Maureen Benedict set up a community Facebook page to co-ordinate volunteers in her small village, which has many older people. She also began to cook a curry once a week for neighbours. This has now grown into a weekly Curry Club serving over 35 people each week.
