YEO VALLEY LIONS SANTA SLEIGH RUN

Santa's back in the North Pole and the Lions' sleigh is mothballed for another year! But after some truly dreadful weather during December when our elves got very wet, our villages' usual generosity was undeterred and our collections will contribute substantial sums to our local charities. We are so grateful to all the children, parents and grandparents who came out to see Santa, who gave our elves a great welcome, and filled up the envelopes and buckets. We couldn't do our community work without your donations so a BIG thank you to you all.

Singing for the Brain Christmas Party

The Alzheimer's Singing for the Brain Christmas Party took place on Thursday 30 November at their usual venue of the Old School Rooms in Congresbury. It was very well supported and a good time was had by all attenders, helpers and volunteers alike. The Lions club provided the food and volunteers from the Club helped with setting up the room and serving drinks. There was a local disk jockey who sang and played well known songs from the 60s and 70s, prompting many of us to take to the floor!

On World Diabetes Day, Tuesday 14th November, Yeo Valley Lions had an information stall outside the Co-op in Yatton where leaflets and other items such as 'Message in a Bottle' were distributed. Lions Club has supported diabetes prevention for a number of years.

Thank you Yeo Valley Lions club for the lovely Santa Visit to the Avenue last night, and for organising the brilliant carol concert in the precinct. We are so lucky to have you in the village, supporting the community food bank, running the yellow bus, amongst many other acts of generosity, all made possible by people giving up their free time to volunteer.

The Lions presented her with a cheque for £500 towards the cost of the chair.

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.
