Members of the internationally known Lions service club live by the motto of “We Serve” but in doing so they need the support of their local communities.

“Locally we are running the project 100 Deeds for 100 Needs of which the objective is to collect 100 winter bedding items consisting of blankets, comforters and/or duvets. This is in celebration of Lions Clubs International 100th year anniversary,” said Lion President Hein de Vrey.

A worldwide challenge has gone out to all 1.4 million Lion members, to celebrate this amazing accomplishment during June 2017 through various projects in their communities.

“In order for us to achieve the objective the Uitenhage Lions Club in conjunction with the Leos Clubs extend a special invitation to the people from Uitenhage and Despatch for donations of blankets, comforters and/or duvets.

Winter bedding drop off points

Collection points will be set up on Saturday, June 3rd at Levyvale SuperSpar, with Uitenhage convener Lion Freddie (083 448 3120) in charge at this site. The other collection point will be at Despatch SuperSpar with Lion Barend (084 571 4874) as the convener there.

“The donations of blankets, winter bedding and duvets will be distributed to needy scholars and students in the Uitenhage and Despatch areas,” said Lion de Vrey.

The distribution of the donations will be handled via the United Christian Student’s Association (UCSA) of the Leos Club.

“So, let the countdown begin! As per an old Arabian proverb, The virtue of deeds lies in completing them. We are looking forward to achieving the target of 100 deeds for 100 needs,” said Lion De Vrey.
