Double Celebration for Pontefract Lioness Club

Pontefract Lioness Club were proud to celebrate 40 years of service to their community on 23rd June 2017. Members from 3 Lioness Clubs and 12 Lions Clubs joined us for this special occasion. Our guest speaker for the evening was Gaynor Barnes of ITV Calendar and Easy Street Band provided dancing till late in the evening.

Sponsoring Lions Club, Castleford & Pontefract District marked the occasion by presenting the Lioness Club with a personalised wind flag which will be made good use of at both fund-raising and service events as it is an ideal way to keep the Club’s name at the forefront of everyone’s mind.

As founder and current President of the Club, Lioness Jeanne Morgan was also celebrating 40 years as a Lioness and she was delighted to be presented with an International President’s Certificate of Appreciation and a letter of congratulations from Past International Director Lion Phil Nathan MBE, as well as a special presentation from her own Club in recognition of all her hard work and dedication to the movement.

Club members said “if it wasn’t for Lioness Jeanne we wouldn’t be here today so we just had to mark the occasion with something that she can always remember us by.

It is an honour to be part of the first Lioness Club in the country and having achieved 40 years of service – we are now looking forward to making it 50!”

DG David also presented 4 members with long service awards they were:

Lioness Maxine Squire 20 year Certificate
Lioness Wendy Squire 20 year Certificate
Lioness Dee Lazenby 25 year Certificate
Lioness Helen Charlotte 35 year Certificate

Leeds Lions Name Our Mascot Competition

Above is a Photo of our competition winner.
He is 6 year old Thomas Crowley from Leeds 15

We were very surprised to receive more than sixty suggestions naming our Leeds Mascot Lion. We chose the name Dandylion. His brother Sammy also entered and came a close second with the name Parsley.

We had every type of name from Lenny the Lion and Roary to Amra (Apparently the Lion God) and we considered every one. One man entered the name Leodis (Leeds) whilst he was over here from Portugal (he is a Lion over there) and whilst we liked the name decided it was a long way for him to come to collect his prize had he been chosen the winner!!

Celebrating 50 yrs of Hornsea District Lions Club

This year marks the 50th anniversary of the Charter of Hornsea District Lions Club. To celebrate this special
occasion, the club has financed the construction of a Bandstand in the town memorial gardens The project was 3 years in the planning and has cost in excess of £50,000. The bulk of this was raised through our very popular Charity shop which is open 6 days a week. This is staffed by our team of 27 Lions and 27 volunteers. The club was able to secure two major grants, each of £5000 from the East Riding of Yorkshire Council and the Withernwick wind farm community fund.

In addition, the Big Lottery Fund gave a grant of £3,500 to help finance the cost of the entertainment that will
take place throughout the summer. In conjunction with the town council, a total of five band concerts plus other musical entertainment (including something for the children) have been arranged.

Lion Dr Chris Parker has worked very hard on behalf of the club over the last three years liaising with Council
Planning committee. Architect and contractors to ensure that everything was in place and completed in time for
the opening concert on the 28th May.

Huddersfield Lions Club Raising Funds for Kirkwood Hospice

As part of the Huddersfield Lions Club Diamond Year in 2016, we celebrated our 60 years as a club with various projects. Among our main efforts was to raise funds for a new kitchen for Huddersfield’s Kirkwood Hospice.
On 17th January 2017, a cheque for £25,091.00 was presented to the hospice, our very proud achievement, much appreciated by those at the hospice.

Why collect for a new kitchen?
Listen to what Kirkwood Hospice had to say:

“It is becoming increasingly difficult for our catering team to meet the dietary and nutritional needs of patients such as those who suffer from oesophagus cancer due to the considerable age of the existing kitchen at Kirkwood. It is not always possible to prepare and store meals outside set mealtimes for a patient with a stent, for example, due to a severe lack of storage space. Moreover, there is no space for important pieces of equipment such as food mixers and ice cream makers. Food mixers could be used to prepare fresh sauces and soups for patients with stents, and ice cream makers for homemade ice cream. Such pieces of equipment would help our staff to increase the nutritional value of patient food, which is extremely important especially when patients might not be able to consume normal levels of food”.

“One of the overall aims of the Hospice is to maximise the quality of life for all our patients. Food can make such a huge difference in relation to a patient’s mood, inner peace and wellbeing. The impact of what may appear to be small comforts such as freshly prepared sauces and freshly churned ice cream cannot be underestimated. Unfortunately, as it stands, we do not have the capacity to provide such comforts due to the many constraints of an aging kitchen.
A modern catering kitchen that is fit for purpose is essential to the outstanding level of care we continually strive to provide at Kirkwood Hospice, and to meet complex nutritional needs of all patients including those who may have cancer of the oesophagus.”
Huddersfield Lions Club has been involved with the Hospice from its earliest days and our support has continued to our recent efforts. The late Lion John Curtis’s bequest to the club, from which we gave a generous donation to the kitchen appeal, was given in the knowledge that this would have meant a lot to John, who valued the work of the hospice. He would have been pleased to have had the opportunity to make his own contribution.
Amongst our various funding efforts, we gave time to the following: Stalls at a number of local shows and galas; entries in the Huddersfield Lions Santa Dash and Charity Challenge fundraising events; a quiz; an Easter Egg Raffle; a raffle at the Huddersfield Lions Diamond Charter Dinner and a charity event at Headfield School, Dewsbury, where the children raised £2,000 on behalf of our appeal.
We were grateful to all the Lions clubs in our district for support with this appeal.
