Leigh Lions Family Day Raises Vital Funds

Leigh Lions Club recently raised £1,100 in aid of LIBRA’s Tree of Life appeal. Members of the Greater Manchester Club organised a fantastic ‘Family Day Out’ on 22nd July 2018, with a mini fete in a charming garden setting.

There were a variety of fun stalls including a ‘knock down the cans’, tombola, bric a brac, books and raffle. For a donation, children were also able to enjoy swimming in a pool for an hour.

Jennifer Curry, Vice President of Leigh Lions, who helped organise the day said: “The event was held in my friend Susan's garden, tea and cakes were served around the pool, and visitors enjoyed yoga on the lawn, along with entertainment from Speiros - a trio of musicians.

“We would like to say a huge thanks to everyone who helped set up over three days including my daughter and Susan, my son-in-law Speiros and Deborah. I would also like to thank our event hosts, along with Leigh Lions for their commitment and support, and all friends who provided help on the day by baking cakes and bringing prizes for the stalls. Also, thanks to Walkers who donated £100, Morrisons who provided fresh cream and jam and a voucher to purchase tea, coffee and milk. While Tesco kindly donated prizes for the tombola stall.”

Andrew Lodge LIBRA Chairman said: “We are so grateful to Leigh Lions for organising such a super event and raising such a great amount. The funds will be used to cover the cost of special medical equipment that will enable Professors at King’s College Hospital in London to develop new and improved treatments for blood cancer patients, including a new vaccine for acute myeloid leukaemia.”
