As a result of the Easter egg raffles held in local pubs and clubs, Notts/ Derbys Hemlockstone Lions Club have recently donated £1,064.69 to the Lincs/Notts Air Ambulance.
The club would like to acknowledge the support of the local community in raising funds for this worthwhile cause.
A donation was also made to Music for Everyone in support of their work in the local community, including their Open Voices singing groups that are particularly suited to adults with learning disabilities.
Those who go along have a fun time singing, make friends and acquire new skills and confidence and this new initiative in Beeston now takes place at the Middle Street Centre.
New activities planned include performances in public spaces, outreach work and collaborations with the Teenage Cancer Trust and Nottinghamshire’s Child and Adolescent Mental Health Service.
The club’s next fundraising activity will be a fashion show to be held at the Middle Street Centre, Beeston on 29th June at 7:30pm. Tickets are now available from members and the Middle Street Centre.
There is now a new glasses collection box in the parish church in Beeston and one at Asda in Long Eaton.
