After a very successful 19th Classic car run on 25th September Uckfield Lions club were delighted to be able to present cheques for £1500 to Motor Neurone and Linden Cottage Uckfield.
For many years Stephen Moore participated in the Classic car runs, unfortunately Stephen has now been diagnosed with Motor Neurone and Uckfield Lions felt that part of the profits from this year’s run should go to M N in honour of Stephen.
The presentation of cheques was made at the Halfway House Isfield with Stephen and his wife along with a representative from M N, unfortunately Linden cottage representative was unable to attend.
Lions would like once again recognize that without the hospitality of the owners of the Halfway house public house Isfield ,Mel and Rowan this event would not happen, and Lions are extremely gratefully.
But these where just two of Lions recent donations to good causes, Lions recently agreed to donated £1800.00 to Heron’s Ghyll RDA money is needed to buy replacement brackets for fixing wheelchairs into the Driving carriages, quote from HG website.
Heron’s Ghyll Driving Group was started in 1985 with one elderly pony. At the present time we have 6 ponies, 2 belong to the group and 4 are privately owned and are very kindly loaned to the Group for its use. Without the ponies that are privately owned, and very kindly loaned to the group for its use, we really could not do the job properly.
The aim is to provide the opportunity for disabled people to participate in this sport with great benefits for their health and wellbeing. It is almost impossible to put into words the profound and lasting benefits that this sporting therapy has brought to people.
Lions are donating an AED to Blackboys and Framfield village halls.
£200 to Ukrainian refuge appeal, local need.
An initial donation of £250.00 to Manor Park residents Ass who are looking to Create a Warm Place in a town centre location, Lions will review again once more information is available.
Through Lions international a donation of £500.00 to Pakistan flood appeal.
