Last year Yeo Valley Lions helped local Yatton young woman Beckie White, chase her sporting dream. A Bristol Bears Wheelchair Rugby player she undertook a fundraising challenge in her self-propelled wheelchair to raise funds for her own rugby specific chair.
The Lions presented her with a cheque for £500 towards the cost of the chair.
We are pleased to announce that Beckie now has the chair and is keen to show it off with these pictures.

Yeo Valley Lions agreed to help fund the new defibrillator at Hangstones Pavilion, Yatton. This was initially instigated as a requirement by the organisers of Junior Parkrun who needed to have a defibrillator close by. This has now been funded by ‘Junior Parkrun’, the WI, Yatton Parish Council and Yeo Valley Lions. On Sunday 26th September it was officially unveiled, this also happened to be the 2nd birthday of the Parkrun.

Yeo Valley Lions are busy taking donations from Yatton Youth Club and Yatton Co-op to the Foodbank in Clevedon. We often also transport large amounts from the Foodbank to their storage depot in Kenn Rd. We then bring food parcels back to the Youth Club ready for their collection and distribution. On a recent trip we delivered 37 bags of kindly donated food and sundries from local residents of Yatton, Congresbury and Wrington to the Foodbank. If you would like to make a donation to the Clevedon Food Bank, they can be left at Yatton Youth Club on Thursday mornings. 

CHARITY GOLF DAY - 2021 was held on the 23rd September.

Nick and Cas of the Butchers Arms Yatton received a certificate of appreciation from Pete Selvey, President of Yeo Valley Lions Club, in recognition of the support given to the community over the past few months. Whilst we were in lockdown the pub was used as a base for free community meals. These were initiated by Jonny Burnett but extremely well prepared and delivered by a host of volunteers. Nick and Cas were also instrumental in supplying and delivering bespoke veg boxes whilst continuing with free delivery of their Sunday roasts. All of this has been greatly appreciated by the local community for which we are all very grateful.
