Festive News Hereford Lions Club The 24th Annual Edition - December 2017 VOLUNTEERS VITAL TO COMMUNITIES The need for more volunteers to work in their communities has never been greater as local cash strapped authorities are forced to cut many services the public relied on. The call for people to sign up as a volunteer with a local charity or community project was made by civic leaders at a Town Hall reception when Hereford Lions Club celebrated the Centenary of its parent body, Lions Clubs International with £1,000 donations to each of ten local charities. The Dowager Countess of Darnley, Her Majesty’s Lord Lieutenant of Herefordshire who presented the cheques on behalf of Lions Club, part of a global organisation with 1.4m volunteers in 46,000 clubs in 200 countries praised the work of charities and urged more people to become community volunteers to fill the gap ? left by the loss of many vital public services. Responding to her appeal for more people to join the ranks of volunteers Lions Festive News, itself produced by volunteers, is dedicating this edition to all those whose unpaid work makes a big difference to the quality of life of so many fellow citizens. The Mayor, Cllr Sharon Michael said: “More public services are being cut and an increasing number of organisations now rely on charities and volunteers to keep them going. Without more volunteers many will collapse.” Cllr Brian Wilcox, chairman of Herefordshire Council endorsed the appeal for more volunteers saying: “Herefordians have a marvellous community spirit and I am sure many more will want to offer their help as volunteers.” Hereford MP Jesse Norman also backed the Festive News campaign to boost volunteer numbers, telling our readers: “It’s great fun; you meet lovely people and your help will make a huge difference.” Will Lindesay, Chief Executive of HVOSS said: “There are thousands of volunteers across Herefordshire making an incredibly positive contribution to their communities. Volunteering provides opportunities for friendship, social interaction and personal development.” Lions president Ian Foster flanked by Lady Darnley and the Mayor Cllr Sharon Michael with representatives of the ten charities collecting £1,000 cheques.
