Rugby Rokeby Lions Club support frontline staff at St Cross Hospital

Rugby Editorial 15th May, 2020   0

THE RUGBY Rokeby Lions Club is helping support frontline staff at St Cross Hospital during the pandemic.

They have received a £750 grant from the Lions Clubs Foundation of the British Isles, which has launched a £100,000 special fund to support communities nationwide during the Covid-19 crisis.

Rugby Rokeby Lions Club is using the cash to buy laundry bags – 100 of which have already been supplied in which to wash protective clothing – together with supplies of bottled water and fruit.

Club president Gill Nelson said: “This is a significant sum of money that we are putting to good use straightaway. This pandemic is hurting lots of local people in lots of different ways – just because we are all social distancing doesn’t stop us from caring – we are doing what we can, and this cash injection will help us do more.”




When a humanitarian crisis strikes, the Lions Clubs Foundation of the British Isles works with and are guided by their own Lions members who are ordinary people actively working at the heart of their communities.
