Lions donate Easter Meals to Pantry Food bank
Volunteers at Newcastle Pantry Foodbank were pleased to be interrupted at their very busy work of preparing food parcels by Newcastle Lions, when the club members presented twelve Family Easter Dinners and also boxes of Easter Eggs.
Having made a smaller donation of six meals at Christmas the Lion Club members were please to double the donation this time. During the last months aided by the media of zoom , the club has kept up regular contact with each of the lion members and has used the facility to fund raise with a very successful night at the races. Lion President Marian Mc Greevy was pleased to report at the last zoom club meeting , that Newcastle Lions had received a very good review at the recent Ireland Lions Convention for the promotion work the club undertook for World Diabetes Awareness Day including the use by the club of Newcastle's Electronic Screen . The Lions Convention was by zoom and nearly three hundred Lions took part.
