At their rearranged June business meeting Holsworthy & District Lions agreed to donate £200 to the Lions Club International Foundation (LCIF) to support the victims of last month’s earthquake in Nepal. The LCIF was founded in 1968 and part of its mission is to raise money to support humanitarian disasters throughout the world. The £200 donated by Holsworthy Lions will be part of thousands of pounds that will be sent to local Lions clubs in Nepal for them to distribute as they see fit to help their local communities. The LCIF truly is an international organisation and in recent years money has been donated by them to help the victims of the Boscastle floods and the recent flooding on the Somerset levels.

At the same meeting, the Lions agreed make a donation to the Alzheimer’s Society. The Lions golf day on 20 June at Holsworthy golf club was, unfortunately, cancelled due to a lack of interest – with only half a dozen teams signing up for the all day long event. Money raised from that day was supposed to be split between the Alzheimer’s Society and Lions’ charities. Despite the cancellation of the event, the Lions agreed to donate £200 to the Alzheimer’s Society which helps people suffering with dementia throughout the UK.
