Lion Keith (Ross on Wye Lions Club) had been looking forward to the drive down to Port Talbot for Convention. As you can see, he is devastated!
I don’t think I can add anything.
Thanks to your clubs’ support, we are able to keep thousands of Syrian children safe and warm during this bitterly cold winter.
LIBRA (Lions International Blood Research Appeal) is a Lions national project, supported by Hereford Lions Club. It funds research into Leukaemia at Kings College Hospital.
We enjoyed a super gathering at the Lions South East Convention in Uckfield at the weekend. It was fantastic to raise awareness of the pioneering gene #therapie...s for blood #cancers being created at King's College Hospital and to welcome Farzin Farzaneh, Professor of Molecular Medicine. He spoke about progress with some amazing new treatments and how the support of LIBRA makes a real difference - enabling this research to be carried out. Thank you Professor.

Hereford Lions Club also supports UNICEF, as do 1000’s of Lions Clubs world-wide. One scheme we support is School in a Box, everything you need for a village school in just on (big) Box.
In the wake of emergencies — whether violent conflicts, devastating earthquakes, or storms big enough to mow down entire villages — children desperately need a ...lifeline back to normality. They need help recovering from the trauma of all they've seen and experienced. They crave a renewed sense of security.
That's why Lions Clubs International and UNICEF work so hard to restart children's schooling immediately following disasters.
Give £4 and provide education for a child.
Where there is a need there is a Lion! 🦁🦁🦁
5th February 2018. Donations of £1000.00 were made to both The Jesse May Trust and to Julia's House, organisations who provide help to terminally ill children a...nd their families. The monies raised came from our Christmas collections and were topped up from Club funds.

Every year Lions in South Wales, Herefordshire, Gloucestershire and Bristol area collect over 20,000 pairs of old specs. The lenses are sorted and end up as new specs in Africa and other third world areas. This is just one of the many things we do that people don’t see.
This year we are attempting to break the world record for a chain of specs, on March 3rd. The specs will then go on for sorting as normal. Watch this space!
