Melksham Lions donate to Mind

Over the past Lion year, Jul ’16 to June ’17, Melksham Lions have supported local causes to the sum of just under £3,000 which, they say, is due to the  generosity of local people.

Keith Mead, president, of Melksham Lions said, “We have also supported calls from Lions Clubs International for contributions towards international disasters such as the Italian earthquake and the Haiti hurricane relief funds.

“Our year ended with our Secretary, Sue Whyborn, presenting a cheque for £150 to Beverly Harris, manager of the Wiltshire Mind charity shop in Melksham, in recognition of the good work they do in our community.

“Wiltshire Mind is a local independent mental health charity based in Melksham that provides countywide services and one we are pleased to support.

“It is a charity that relies exclusively on donations and fundraising to generate the income needed to provide their mental health services. They have helped many people in our area and have also been supporting Melksham Lions by donating items to us for the homeless that we continue to support in Melksham.”
