Heather and DG Jarvis MacDonald


In times like these we need to take care of not only the public well-being but also our family, friends, club members and our own well-being. Especially those who may be feeling lonely, isolated, vulnerable or just bored!

The Global Action Team (GAT) have created a few pointers to consider for keeping yourselves involved during Social Distancing and Isolation; although the ‘normal’ methods of communicating may have changed it should not mean the old-fashioned communication stops.

See the ideas page of the Global Action Team (GAT).

MD Emergency Grant - closed

My Dear Fellow Lions

I am writing to you today to inform you that the Emergency Grant Applications process launched when I last wrote to you is now closed.

The intention of the Trustees has been that, faced with the current crisis of COVID-19 in the British Isles, find a way to help Clubs do what they do best… “Serve”.

Since this process commenced 212 Applications have been received and considered, the vast majority of which have been approved in part or in full. This represents Applications from over a third of the Lions Clubs in MD105.

Grants totalling over £140,000 have been approved and the majority of these have now been paid and the remainder will be soon.

Many Clubs have also matched funds so much more has been utilised by the Lions Clubs of MD105 to serve their Communities.

Please remember to use this, as the opportunity it is, to raise the profile of Lions in MD105 and encourage others in the future to join us in the amazing work that we do.

I must finally thank my fellow Trustees; Andy Pemberton, Tom Berry, Corinne Ashburner, Phil Robinson, Linda Picton, Peter Burnett, Ian Gott and Philip Goodier for all their hard work on this and I hope you all see, as I do, this has been a great opportunity for Lions despite all the challenges we currently face.

Stay safe and well.

Social events refunds

District Treasurer Linda Picton has emailed everyone who booked social events asking for bank details so that she may refund you. If you have not already sent your details please do so as soon as possible

Advice from MD

If your club is planning to hold any public events between now and 31st of May 2020, we would strongly suggest that you consider postponing them until later into the Summer. Public Gatherings are an area of concern for health officials as COVID-19 is a respiratory virus and transmitted through the air. This will help to protect the communities we engage with and will be seen as a proactive and responsible step by the public. 

Your Club, Your Way means that you need to decide what is best for your club members, if you have a proportion of your club who are in the high risk categories (Those over the age of 70, Those with underlying medical conditions) it would be prudent to consider cancelling your March, April and May face to face Business Meetings.
