Update from Maltby (Rother Valley) Lions President, John Rathbone

This year has been a strange year, the last few months have been like something we have never known before. We have only been able to have one meeting since March. 

This will be the first year we have had to cancel our Christmas Carol Concert. With everything still being unsure, we think it is for the best.

We are unsure at this time what will happen regarding the Christmas Sleighs. We are in the process of refurbishing both of them at this time. We may have to put up some kind of screen to protect everyone. This will be at the top of our list at the next meeting, we will be doing our best to get out and about with the sleighs if possible and safe to do so.

We will keep you all updated as and when we know what we can do. All of our Members and Helpers look forward to being out with the sleighs probably as much as everyone that comes out to see us!

Would you like to become a member of the Lions or support the charity in any way? Message us for more information or call us on: 07504 326336

We would also like to thank the public for your generous donations ans continued support. So santa is on his way back to the north pole and will pay one more visit to you all tonight, on the provision you have been good boys ans girls, and are all asleep and tuck away in bed.

Santa and his team are keeping very busy!

Santa and his team of volunteer helpers from Maltby (Rother Valley) Lions Club are still keeping very busy indeed, as they make the sleigh runs throughout the North and South sides of Maltby and the Rother Valley. We thought we would just take this opportunity to share a few of the photos with you.

To see more images and for up-to-date info about the sleigh runs please visit our Lions Facebook Fanpage.

Maltby (Rother Valley) Lions Club was formed in 1978. Our members come from all walks of life sharing a common goal to help and support others in the community who are less fortunate than ourselves and support various projects and local groups including junior football teams, schools, nurseries, care homes and our annual Lions Fun and Sports day for the disabled.

We raise money throughout the year with our Casino for parties and special events, our Tombola stall and raffles etc. You will see us around the local streets with Santa and his sleigh and outside various local shops with our static sleighs, for two weeks before Christmas, raising money to go back into the local community. We have a committed band of members and volunteer helpers who give up their time, year after year for free come rain, hail, wind and snow.

Why not join us as a member or volunteer helper, raising money for worthwhile causes whilst having fun and sometimes shedding a tear or two!

Thank you to all our sponsors and everyone who donates to us, it is very much appreciated.
