Where there is a need there is a Lion

Quinn is delighted that he can now return to school

This is Quinn in a wheelchair loaned to him by Maltby Rother Valley Lions. Quinn had an accident and was unable to walk. He didn’t want to miss school and his dad contacted John, our President, to see if we could help. He got a wheelchair to him the same day and Quinn’s lovely smile shows how happy he is.

Enjoy school Quinn and good luck from us all at the Lions

Donate to help make PPE for Local Hospitals

A Rotherham based couple are currently supporting local Hospitals in the battle against COVID-19.

PPE for local HospitalsThey are helping with the following:
* Producing PPE Visors
* Purchasing Hand sanitiser
* Purchasing Hand cream
* Making Head bands
* Purchasing Blue face masks

To make a donation or to find out more info, please visit: PPE For Local Hospitals Facebook >

 

IF YOU KNOW ANYONE WHO NEEDS THESE PLEASE CONTACT THEM!

Care professionals are desperate for any support, particularly these essential PPE additions, as we all know the demand for PPE is extremely high and this will increase over the next few weeks.

If you would like to support them please, share, give them a personal recommendation or donate. Every penny counts! Anyone else who has got the skills to make these items please also get in touch and we will do what we can to help.

We need to raise money to purchase PPE and 3d printing materials to make PPE visors and to keep production going. So far they have purchased 2 extra 3d printers, lots of materials to make around 150 visors and purchased 50 face masks.

When the vital PPE is no longer needed they are selling one printer, donating the money to Rotherham Hospice and the second printer will be donated to a local school.

Thanks to donations so far they now have THREE 3D PRINTERS! We aim to produce around 290 visors in a week if the printers behave.

Lions help Carol to feel safe again

Maltby (Rother Valley) Lions install a security light for Carol GottWhat better way to spend the money collected from our Christmas sleighs than on members of the local community who donated in the first place. Maltby Rother Valley Lions have been helping Carol Gott, who was left feeling insecure after getting two windows smashed in her home and being hit on the head, leaving her with a nasty gash, two black eyes and severe bruising.

Well known in her community having worked at Melton Court Nursing Home for 20 years and then as a dinner lady at Maltby Manor Primary School for another 18, we wanted to help this wonderful lady to feel safe again. Lions helped to install two security lights to go alongside her CCTV and visited Carol in her home.

You may have seen this incident in the local newspapers – read more about Carol’s story at The Star Website.
