Support for Jonathan's Voice
Even during the Covid-19 lockdowns, Southwell Lions were meeting via Zoom and offering financial support t local organisations and charities. In February 2021, following a thought provoking presentation by Graham McCartney, after whose son Jonathan's Voice was named, we donated £500 to this very worthwhile project that helps with mental health and well being in the workplace and beyond. Our donation is helping to fund the Mindstep Fellowship in Suicide Research at the University of Glasgow.

Southwell & District Lion gets Top Award for Service to our Club
Southwell & District Lions finally were able to meet face to face albeit outdoors and enjoyed a picnic. During the event Lion Ian Robinson was awarded the Melvin Jones Fellow award, one of the the top awards within the Lions, for services to the Club. Ian has worked tirelessly within the club to help raise funds for worthy causes and for the last 2 years has been our Secretary, a job he has excelled in. The award is long over due and really well deserved.
