KETTERING LIONS SUPPORTING THE LOCAL COMMUNITY

ketteringKettering Lions Club recently introduced their Community Grant Scheme, Inviting applications from local charities, organisations and clubs needing help to start or complete their projects. A number of worthy causes applied, from which 6 were finally chosen, each receiving an award of £500.

A presentation event was held and each charity received their cheque from Lion Club President, Malcolm Harris. In thanking the Lions, each recipient team leader gave a short talk saying what the club or charity did, and how they would spend the money and the benefits that it would bring.

The organisations represented were Accommodation Concern; Equate, a riding charity helping children within the autistic spectrum; Isham Guiding Centre; Kettering Car Scheme which transports people to their medical appointments; Kettering School of Boxing; The Eden Centre, based in the Open Door Church, providing meals, food and clothing to the homeless and needy.

A buffet rounded off the friendly evening at which approx. 50 people enjoyed swapping information, about their varied activities.
