£100K: Lions Clubs supporting communities during COVID-19 crisis
The Bedford Lions Club has received a share of £100,000 from the Lions Clubs Foundation of the British Isles. Lions Clubs across the British Isles have benefited from a special fund launched to support local communities during the COVID-19 crisis. Bedford Lions Club will utilise the grant to support Bedford Foodbank with a donation of £1,000 at this critical time. Lion Maddy Gamble said: “This is a significant sum of money that we are putting to good use straight away. This Coronavirus pandemic is hurting lots of local people in lots of different ways - just because we are all social distancing doesn’t stop us from caring - we are doing what we can, and this cash injection will help us do more.” When a humanitarian crisis strikes, the Lions Clubs Foundation of the British Isles works with and are guided by their own Lions members who are ordinary people actively working at the heart of their communities. Your local Lions Club supports a range of good causes and local projects where you can get involved, please contact us through our website www.bedfordlions.co.uk, by phoning 0345 833 7429 or through our Facebook page at Bedford Lions UK.
