last Sunday’s event
Following the event, held in the Castle grounds in Tamworth, Lion President
Patricia Lambert, speaking on behalf of Tamworth’s Lion, gave her thanks for all of the support and friendship shown by the residents of Tamworth on the Lion’s big day out at the Family Festival last weekend.
“Everywhere we went, the people smiled, took our photograph, gave the Lion hugs, and made donations to the causes that the Tamworth Lions support in and around Tamworth.
We raised over £1,600.00 on the day – it was a roaring success!”
Tamworth Lions support many local causes, including the Tamworth Talking
Newspaper for the blind, Message In a Bottle, the collection of over 38,000 pairs of used spectacles for recycling for third world countries, and sponsoring Two Rivers Special School pupils attendance at the Ashby Statutes, and Chasetown Santa Special Steam Railway.
‘We have the annual family day on August Bank Holiday Sunday, can shakes,
our annual celebratory Charter lunch in October, the opening of the Lions Club International shelter at the National Arboretum, a race night on 10th March, and other events to keep Tamworth Lions busy helping raise funds for the community, including the Tamworth Talking Newspaper, Staffordshire
Young Carers, and Lions National and International Projects’
