In August Felixstowe Lions were approached to help to organise an event for the Ukrainian families currently living in Felixstowe who wanted to celebrate Ukrainian Independence Day on 24th August to raise awareness of Ukrainian culture, portray current events in Ukraine and raise money primarily for a Ukrainian charitable foundation, in Kiev, which supports disabled people who cannot escape the war in Ukraine.
The day was a great success with over £860 being raised for the charity in Kiev and fun was had by all, as the photos show.
The last Antiques and Collectables Sale of this year was held on September 3rd with over £765 being raised to help Lions with their work in the community. Grateful thanks to all who came to snap up a bargain!
We are also pleased to have been able to hold several car boot sales on Saturdays in the Grove.
In September Felixstowe Lions held their annual charity Golf Day event. Great fun was had by all the teams with the winners being ‘The Lucky Boys’. Photo shows them receiving their prizes with Lion Peter Cooke who organised the event. After fees and expenses an amount of £578 was raised for this year’s charity, the RNLI. An additional amount was match funded through the Matthew Good Foundation and the Lions Club, with a result that a cheque for £1000 will be winging its way to the RNLI. Well done to all!
