Spalding Lions presented a cheque to Rosa Woodley, Head of Events and Community Fundraising at the Hope for Tomorrow. The money was mostly raised at a 60’s and 70’s disco in September, with Lions agreeing to add £200 to bring the total to £1000.

Lion Jim Walker also presented £100 on behalf of Elaine Ladds, collected from donations made at her card creating classes.

Rosa gave a talk and presented a video to the Lions about Hope for Tomorrow, a national cancer charity dedicated to bringing cancer treatment closer to patients’ homes with a local connection as South Holland has been earmarked as a possible location for one such unit.

Lion President Richard Briers said: “It gave the Spalding Lions great pleasure to present the cheque.

“Knowing that Hope for Tomorrow was a worthy recipient of our money we all sincerely hoped that we would not have to make an appointment with one of their units.

“Although Spalding Lions spend the money they raise in the local community it was felt that this charity was worthy of our support.”
