Lions provide Defibrillator

The Lions Club of Harrogate wish to thank the Knox Bilton for agreeing to site and service the latest Lions community based 24/7 Defibrillator on their premises. Members of the public have been invited to a special CPR awareness session at the Knox on Saturday 24th March when First Responders will be on hand to provide, and the Defibrillator in use will be demonstrated.

Thanks from the Lions

Harrogate Lions Club would like to thank the very generous people of Harrogate for their help, support and generosity over the Christmas period.   The total donations collected over the 2017 Christmas period  came  to £5102 – This money will be used to support good causes and to help people in need over the coming year.   We would also like to thank Waitrose, Sainsbury and M& S,  Leeds Road stores for allowing us to have the static collection at there stores and also to Evans Halshaw,  Harrogate for the loan of the Sleigh  tow vehicle. Also huge thank you to members of the Harrogate ATC for their assistance with our round the houses collections and static collection.

 

Santa is on his way

“Christmas starts for us when we have seen  the Harrogate Lions with Santa”,  this is one of the many warm comments that we have received as we tour the streets with our Sleigh and Santa.   It is a real pleasure to see so many happy  families  out  to welcome us as we journey around the Town

This year we are very grateful to Evans Halshaw Hyundai,  Harrogate,  for their kind  loan  of the tow car.

Eye Laser Project wins an award

We were very pleased and proud to be awarded the Peter H. Shaw award for the Lion’s District 105C best community project. This was presented at the District convention in a very blustery Bridlington last month. The convention was great fun, especially seeing all the clubs in costume at the fancy dress dinner, and it was also informative, giving us lots of new ideas we can use here in Harrogate. We were also able to thank all the Lions clubs across the District who had donated to the HELP appeal.

The award is a great tribute to all the people from Harrogate and beyond who attended events, climbed hills, ran, cycled and donated over the 10 months it took to raise the £80.000 needed.
