News February 2017

One of the strengths of the Lions’ organisation is that it allows individual clubs to operate at a local level, but gives the opportunity to join with others regionally, nationally and internationally. As examples, the Lions Club of Woodbridge & District has recently agreed to support a local course in Makaton – a sign language designed for children with special needs; contributed to a project lead by the New Century Lions Club to mark the 2017 centenary of the Lions movement – this project will provide raised garden beds in a centre for disadvantaged people in Ipswich, and; contributed to the Lions Clubs International Foundation’s Sight Savers programme. Formerly known as Sight First, this programme is on target to save or restore sight for one million people worldwide.
