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.

Beverley Westwood Lions Continue to Grow

At our last Club Meeting we inducted another member, Pat Essam, who met us all for the first time before Christmas when we were working with our Christmas sleigh.

Lion President Ian Sagar, inducting Lion Pat Essam along with her sponsor Lion Judy Sagar

When we started this club just two years ago, we decided to make it a more informal, family Club, and this seems to be working as it is fast becoming one of the biggest Clubs in the District.

In the last couple of months, the Club has donated to the Humberside Lifestyle Project, which involves all Clubs in the local area, also donated to the Doncaster Disabled Sports and agreed to take two games to the event.

At the Convention in February, we were presented with our Twinning Patch for twinning with The Lions of East Dharan, Nepal, and since then we have sent a donation to the Lions in Nepal to assist them with their project to provide cataract operations

Goole & Howdenshire Business Excellence Awards

In DG David’s January Newsletter, I reported that Goole District Lions were in the final of the above awards in the category ‘Charity of the Year’.

February 24th was the date of the final, attended by over 200 participants, all hoping for success in various categories, along with Lion President Roger Basing & his wife Margaret representing the Club.

After a hearty meal, the real event of the evening proceeded with everyone on the edge of their seats. Then came the category of ‘Charity of the Year’. The three contenders were announced – Jerry Green Dog Rescue, Hull & East Riding (HER) Breast Friends and Goole & District Lions Club (yes – & District).

On announcement of the result & presentation by BBC’s Harry Gration, however, all complaints were forgotten as Goole & District Lions Club were pronounced winners of ‘Charity of the Year 2017’. Lion President Roger proudly accepted the winning trophy & certificate on behalf of Goole District Lions Club, and paraded it at the next Club meeting.

This is a great honour & is a reflection of the 50 years hard work, dedication and sacrifice of all the Club members, past & present.

Even though the trophy & certificate say Goole & District Lions Club, Goole District Lions Club know it is theirs & is proud to announce the title:
