Changing times for Ross-on-Wye Lions Club
Ross-on-Wye Lions Club are moving forward in strength this year as they continue to volunteer their time and expertise to help the community. Their annual handover was a little different, as Past President Keith Wilding handed over the role to this year’s President Fiona Walker at the Lion Centenary Statue.
Keith explained how the Club had faced challenges this year, with floods forcing the cancellation of Bonfire Night, and Covid-19 causing the suspension of other activities such as Rossbeerfest and Ross Carnival.
Despite this, Lions have continued to make a difference with prescription deliveries, making face coverings and donating funds through grants received from their International Charity.
In taking over, Fiona said she intends to keep the Club active with online meetings and supporting local causes. She hopes to focus on one of the five areas of service, Childhood Cancer, alongside the local causes and activities such as the Pancake Day Races that re-started so successfully last February.
Whatever the next year brings, Ross Lions will be ready to help as they are needed and will always welcome new volunteers to enjoy the sense of enjoyment and fulfilment that being a Lion brings.
