Marie Curie collection 2021

For several years Stowmarket Lions have help provide collectors for Marie Curie as part of a national partnership.

This year the Lions Club of Stowmarket and District has helped out Marie Curie again by providing collectors for the charity

On Friday November 26th and Saturday 27th we were able to stand inside the Tesco Store in Stowmarket and collect money from the generous public.  This year we were able to collect over £1,100 for this excellent cause.  Everything collected goes straight to the charity to help nurses provide the support for families in need.

Our thanks go out to Tesco for allowing us into their store, and for their generous customers that allowed us to reach this amount.

Lions schedule for Santa’s sleigh

We are really pleased to be able to show off Santa and his sleigh this year.

We will be able to take contactless payments on most nights, please ask if you would like to donate that way.

These are the current set of dates and locations but please come back again in December to check to see if they have changed.  We are also trying hard to get some additional visits please watch this space.  We have a reduced number of roads this year due to cautious planning.

Lions sponsored walk

What a fantastic way to spend a Sunday walking around the Recreation Ground.

Many thanks to those Lions who put on their walking shoes on Sunday 26th September. A total of about 26 Kilometres was achieved which is about about 15 miles. For those of you who have maybe not sponsored anybody, you could make a donation through this site.

Thank you also for the Salvation Army for suppling refreshments on the day.
