Maghull Lions at Southport's 55th Charter Lunch
The sun was shining for Southport Lions Club's 55 aniversary charter lunch both inside and out. Outside we had one of the hottest days of the year and inside we had the glow of a very successful Lions club celebrating their 55th aniversary of the club's charter. The venue, the Marine Suite at the Southport Ramada Hotel, was, as we have come to expect, very comfortable and served by attentive and charming staff.
The proceedings started with Southport's secretary, Lion Chris Leather, welcoming everybody in his inimitable humerous way. Prior to the meal being served everybody joined in to remember those affected by the recent terror attacks and the London tower block fire and then thanks were offered for the food we were about to receive.

Maghull and District Lions Club fund raise
Members of the newly-formed Maghull District Lions Club recently raised £350 for Cumbrian flood victims by collecting outside Asda in Aintree.
Steve Little, President of the new Maghull & District Lions said: “Lions are renown for responding to the needs of others quickly. Watching this tragedy unfold on TV was heartbreaking and we readily responded to the need. We can’t even begin to imagine what the people of Cumbria are going through but we felt we had to do something".
“Asda Aintree readily agreed to our request which enabled us to collect a generous sum from the public. The money raised will be match-funded penny for penny by the government. It seems a small amount considering the scale of the floods, but every penny helps and we are proud that every penny raised by our members and the public goes to where the need is. Were hoping to have further collections very soon. It’s why I’m proud to be a Lion!”
Steve went on to say that "Although we primarily support our local community our club is part of the world-wide federation of Lions Clubs and so we will offer our assistance wherever it is needed".
