Welcome from the President of Maltby (Rother Valley) Lions
My name is Joshua Spurr, I have been a member of Maltby Rother Valley Lions for over 5 years. I have been Vice President for over 3 years and was appointed the role of President in early 2022. Which is such a rewarding job working alongside such an amazing Vice President, secretary, treasurer, and members.
2021 to 2022 saw membership grow like never before, we have signed up some amazing members with new ideas and such positivity. We now have an excellent group of members new and old all giving their time up for free and doing amazing things for our community’s and those less fortunate than themselves.
Maltby Rother Valley Lions are most famous for our two Christmas Sleighs. We cover a huge area over the Christmas period. Alongside our usual sleigh runs we visits schools, play groups, care homes, day centres and much more. Being involved in the Christmas sleighs is the most rewarding thing that we do. Seeing the looks on peoples faces young and old is priceless. No day is the same as we get to meet so many different people. The one thing that never changes is the enjoyment that we bring. This would not be possible without the amazing people that help us every year – all giving up their time for free.
The first time helping can feel a little strange at first, but you will be looked after by all of our members and helpers. We are just one big happy family. Warm clothing is an absolute must when you are out with the sleigh, some nights the rain in dripping of you, the wind is in your face, but I can guarantee you will still be wearing a huge smile!
Last year you all helped us raise over £17,500, and all the money that we raise goes directly back into the communities that we have collected in from.
If you would like anymore information about the lions and what we do then please get in touch, you can contact me directly on 07538946137. We have two meetings every month. These are hosted at Hellaby Hall Hotel on the first and third Monday of each month, excluding bank holidays. We always welcome visitors to our meeting and hope to turn those visitors into members.
