Warwick Lions Club overwhelmed by kindness of residents

Warwick Lions will also be putting out collection buckets at tills at Morrisons throughout October

Members of the Warwick Lions Club have been overwhelmed by the kindness of residents during the pandemic.

Lions Clubs have a mandate to assist the needy and disadvantaged members of their respective communities but since the advent of Covid-19 and at a time when demand is at its greatest all fundraising events have had to be cancelled.

Yet thanks to the generosity of local businesses, individual households and various grants, the Warwick Lions, which serves the Leamington and Warwick areas, have been able to continue with their charity work.

A grant from their National Association helped them to donate laptops to a local school during the lockdown and further grants together with assistance from Tesco and Morrisons supermarkets have helped them make up and deliver an on going supply of food parcels and hampers to the elderly and those in need.

Additional donations have also helped them to provide essential furnishings and domestic equipment to others in need.

A spokesperson for the club has said: "As a charity we would have been severely handicapped without this very generous public spirited support and are thrilled at the way people have come together to help."
