Fareham Community Hospital Medical Equipment Fund now stands at £2,250
Our Burns Night in aid of medical equipment for Fareham Community Hospital was held on February 25th 2017, at Harmony Hall Fareham.
After the Haggis was 'piped in' and formally addressed,the company was served an excellent traditional 3- course Dinner.
The 'Immortal Memory' and the 'Toast tae the Lassies' were given, with a' Reply' from the Chair of the Friends of Fareham Hospital.
There then followed an evening of Music, Poetry, and Dancing, with demonstrations of Scottish Dancing by a Ladies dancing Team.
The proceeds from the evenings Raffle were added to our Christmas sleigh collections making a total of £2,250. It is our intention to add to this Fund the profits from our forthcoming Easter Egg Raffle.
When disaster strikes, Lions are among the first to offer help to the victims, even though they are often victims themselves. Lions Clubs International Foundation (LCIF) is right there beside them, ready to support their efforts with funding assistance through Lions disaster relief programs. Working together, LCIF, local Lions and Lions leaders assess the urgent needs and quickly deliver the aid most required by victims.
LCIF has also awarded an Emergency grant to the Lions of 31-N in North Carolina, USA. Lions there are braving the conditions to bring much needed food, water, blankets and medical supplies to those affected most by the storm. More updates about the relief work there is forthcoming.
