Lions UK have formed the Lions Brain Tumour Research Appeal (Lions BTR) with Brain Tumour Research, to raise £1,000,000 to help fund game changing research and raise awareness of brain tumours. 16,000 people are diagnosed with a brain tumour in the UK each year. At any one time there are about 60,000 people living with a brain tumour.
Our coastal walk challenge in 2021 was Southwell Lions’ first step to help raise funds.
The Lions District VIRTUAL balloon race is another way for us to raise funds for this worthy cause, whilst having a bit of a flutter.
The race starts on 13th March and ends on 27th March. The owner of the balloon that has ‘travelled’ furthest will receive £100 and there are 10 runner up prizes.
The virtual balloons are just £5 each via www.balloonrace.com/LIONS105CE, where you can also track your balloon’s progress over the two weeks.
Do please have a go and help us support this much needed research.
