We are still helping local residents by picking up their prescriptions and delivering to their door. Most surgeries have their own delivery network, but some don’t offer this service themselves. So we step up to help.
We had a fantastic time along with Santa at the Stowmarket food bank just before Christmas, but with the lockdown getting more restrictive they will need our and your help for some time.
Are you, or do you know, someone in the Stowmarket area who has risen to the challenge of lockdown and gone that extra mile to do something special to help our community ride out the storm of Covid-19? If you, or they, have helped an elderly or vulnerable neighbour by doing their shopping, rung them to check they are OK, walked their dog, baked cakes or maybe contributed to the enormous efforts to support the NHS by making or delivering PPE equipment or food, then Stowmarket Lions want to hear from you.
In recognition of these or, indeed, any other of the tremendous, selfless examples of community spirit, Stowmarket Lions will be hosting an Awards Evening to recognise and celebrate those individuals who have gone out of their way to help others in these extraordinary times. Special awards will be made recognising outstanding effort by those in the age groups 13 and under, 14 to 18 and 18 to 30.
So, don’t hide your light under a bushel but let us know what you’ve been doing or nominate someone you think deserves recognition by contacting Andrew Bingham on 07894 551670 or by e-mail to email@example.com before Saturday 12th September and join us in the celebrations.
It is with regret that we have to postpone the following events :
Lions Boxing postponed until October/November. Date to be advised.
Lions Bike Ride postponed from June 2020 until June 2021
Lion Golf challenge – cancelled for this year.
We have been constantly monitoring the news and feel that we need to pull both of these events at the time scheduled. This is due to the timing of the impending peak of the outbreak of the Corona Virus (Covid-19).
The Lions club of Stowmarket and District take the impact of holding events on our club and on the general public seriously. We have made these decisions based on a number of criteria.
