Maltby Rother Valley Lions are proud to support Street Friends

Maltby Rother Valley Lions are proud to support Street Friends who are based at Dinnington Resource Centre. Lynn presented a cheque today to Jane Ann Havenhand Mbe to help the group which has been set up to help homeless people living on the street.

They supply them with clothes, coats, hats, scarves, gloves, sleeping bags, blankets, food (rice, pasta, tinned veg, coffee & hot chocolate mixed cups) etc. and rely heavily on donations. If you can help with donations please see their Facebook page or contact the Centre. Well done all, great work!

2020 Christmas donations raise £18,700 for MRVL

Maltby Rother Valley Lions were very busy over the Christmas period bringing some much needed Christmas cheer to our local communities. Our two sleighs travelled the streets with Santa for two weeks before Christmas which was made possible with the help of our wonderful team of helpers, old and new, who turn out whatever the weather. We could not do this without you.

It was very different this year with Covid restrictions, not stopping for photographs and socially distancing and a big thank you to our helpers and to the community for helping us to keep to these rules. Also thank you to our local MP Alexander Stafford, who contacted RMBC on our behalf and supported us on our Sleigh runs and Static sleighs and also to PRS/ PPL who supplied our music licence.

Santa and his helpers also visited numerous local schools where the children were brought out in their bubbles, all socially distanced, to ask him questions and chat with lots of wonderful laughter and singing too!

Thank you from Maltby (Rother Valley) Lions Club

In addition thankyou to all the local schools and businesses who raffled our Advent trees and made donations. Our club has been overwhelmed by the generosity of the people of Maltby and Rother Valley in these difficult times, helping us to raise this magnificent amount of money and enabling us to help many causes and those in need in our communities. We would like to say a heartfelt thank you to you all.

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!

Maltby Miners Memorial Community Group are doing a fantastic job building a memorial displaying engraved name tiles for ex employees of Maltby Colliery. Last week the weather forecast was not good and a message was put on the groups Facebook site asking for the loan of a gazebo.

The Lions offered to lend them ours and Lions John and Dom took it to site. The day turned out to be a very hot one and our gazebo gave some much needed shade to the volunteers working on the memorial.

We all look forward to seeing the finished memorial and learning about the history of Maltby colliery when it is officially opened.
