With the days lengthening we look forward to a busy summer programme. Highlights are: 1st May we will be assisting with car parking and litter picking at the Woodbridge Horse Show; the Woodbridge Regatta is on Sunday 16th July – a revised date from some earlier publicity and Sunday 8th October will see the Martlesham 10k, 5k and Fun Run – for the first time included in the Suffolk County Athletics Association “Suffolk Grand Prix”, so we are anticipating a record number of participants.
Whilst we continue to fundraise locally and offer support in the local community, there is a wider perspective to the Lions’ movement. The Lions’ Clubs International Foundation supports a number of projects worldwide addressing preventable and treatable blindness. Measles in childhood can result in blindness and the LCIF programme of vaccination against measles has passed the astonishing milestone of 65 million children now protected against this disease. Not sitting back, the programme is set to continue through the next few years.
