The Croydon Lions Club is seeking civic-minded men and women to join them in making a difference in the community. The club is hosting an information session on Every 2nd Tuesday off the month for people who want to learn more about the club and its work.
“Our club gives members an opportunity to advance worthy causes, serve with friends, and become leaders in the community. This club means a lot to our Lions, but it means so much more to the people we serve,” said Derek Withers.
The information session will be held at Sainsbury’s Meeting Rooms in West Croydon (Opposite West Croydon Train Station), on the 2nd Tuesday in each month at 7:30 p.m (Formally Known as the Old Ship of Fools Pub). Derek Withers encourages the public to come out and learn more about the club’s work.
“We want to share the great things we’re doing in the community, and let others know how they can help,” said Derek Withers.
The Lions’ motto is “We Serve,” and the Croydon Lions has lived up to it. For 50 years, the clubs has helped:
- Mayday Hospital – Well Woman and KIM (Kids in Mayday) appeals
- Heartbeat Appeal
- 20 nebulisers for the Chest Clinic
- Pulse Oxymeters for Croydon ambulances
- A counselling lounge for Macmillan Nurses.
