All events on hold, but Lions continue to serve the community.

2021


Like for many people 2020 was a lost year for the Rothwell District  Lions so far as getting out and about and involved with the community. We were still however getting requests for assistance. Because of our dwindling finances we have had to be very careful when trying to meet these requests but we were able to assist a young mum called Sara after she had been pointed in our direction. 


Sarah, despite her disability which requires her to use a wheelchair, wrote to ask us if we could help her purchase a new motorised chair. He daughter plays rugby for the Rothwell Raiders rugby League club and Sara herself serves  as a volunteer at the club. She felt that a powered wheelchair would help her play a greater part in the club by allowing her access to the pitch.


We made a pledge towards the cost of a new wheelchair which meant that we would top up any funds she was able to raise herself up to a maximum amount.


We were delighted to hear that Sara had reached her fund raising goal and that with the additional money that the Lions had pledged she was able to purchase a new powered wheelchair. Both Sara and her young daughter were delighted to achieve their goal and wrote to tell us this and to thank the Lions for their help
