BEATS

In July, Southern Co-op ran a Charity Awareness Week. To kick off proceedings they donated £1000 to each of the company’s charity partners, including Southbourne Lions, totalling £98, 000. The donation comes from the remainder of money raised by the company’s ‘Love Your Neighbourhood’ scheme, which is funded by the 5p single-use carrier bag levy, much of which has already been allocated to communities and causes in the south of England.

Lions held their annual summer fete on the lawns of Emsworth Cottage Hospital on 22 July The event was somewhat spoilt by  the wet weather but those who attended made the most of it, dodging the showers. Please see our photo gallery.



Lions donated a bench  to Broadbridge meadow in Bosham. The bench is to commemorate 3 former members who have passed away, John Wild. Peter Talkington and Geoff Whitaker.  Please click here for photographs.
