Lions fund £5,500 Jaundice Scanner for midwives

Forest of Dean Lions and Severndean Lions have donated £5,500 raised from entry fees of the Wild Boar Chase to equip local midwives with a Jaundice Scanner.

Lions donate £500 to the Evergreen Hall, Broadwell.

Forest of Dean Lions donated £500 to the Hall.
This is the ‘Thank You’ email to the Lions from the Evergreen Hall Committee:

I would like to thank you very much for the generous donation from the Lions Club to our Evergreen Hall, Broadwell.

Your gifting will enable us to replace a number of our ‘bucket seats’ and we hope you will be happy that new flooring will be laid in our entrance, kitchen and snug room with some of the monies too.

We have been overwhelmed by the generosity of local businesses and groups who have donated goods and financial assistance which has been matched with the incredible efforts of the Wildwood Yoga community who have taken on the makeover of this lovely old hall with smiles on their faces and paintbrushes in hand!!
