A message from Saturday's matchday bucket collectors, Scunthorpe Lions Club...
Wherever you live, work or travel, you are likely to come across members of Lions clubs and the projects we support.
Lions are ordinary people who do extraordinary things to help others and support good causes. Globally we have more volunteers in more places than any other service club organisation. We love to help others and make things happen.
Because we are local, we serve the unique needs of the community in which we live and the Club in Scunthorpe has been doing that since it was formed in October 1964. That’s over 50 years of making a difference.
For example, we provide free tickets to the Pantomime for children and their families who otherwise would never have the chance to see this type of show. So far this has created memories and smiles for over 10000 people!
We support the Message In a Bottle scheme which aims to provide the Emergency Services with important personal medical information should they be called to your home.
We provide Bravery Lions to help calm and reassure Children who find themselves with an unexpected visit to the Hospital.
And there is a whole host of other schemes and help we have provided over the years.
Of course, none of this would be possible if it wasn’t for the generosity of the people of Scunthorpe.
So a big “thank you” Scunthorpe!
