To celebrate its national organisation’s Ruby Anniversary, Sleaford and District Lioness Club has organised a number of events.

It is 40 years since the founding of nationwide Lioness movement (an offshoot of the Lions Club) in the United Kingdom and Ireland.

To kick off their fundraising programme, the Sleaford Lionesses held a very successful quiz night last week raising £350 for the Willoughby School in Bourne.

The next event will be an Easter Bingo Night at the Solo Club on March 30. Eyes down at 7.30pm. Entry is £1 per book with proceeds going to the Walter Hrubesch Foundation.

Pam Kyte from the club said: “Our biggest event of the year will be a Charity Golf Day on Friday, May 19, at Sleaford Golf Club. Teams of four will have a great day for the reasonable price of £100 which includes food and they will help to raise money for the British Heart Foundation and other local charities. Booking forms are available from any Lioness.”

Entrants get a bacon/sausage bap and coffee on arrival and a two course fork-buffet meal and coffee on completion of the round.

The format will be an 18-hole Stableford team competition – 3/4 handicap allowance. Teams can be gents, ladies or mixed.

If you cannot join in but would like to support these good causes you could sponsor a hole or you could donate a raffle prize. For further information contact one of the Lionesses on 01529 306427.

Finally, on the afternoon of Saturday, June 3, all the Lioness Clubs in the UK are holding a tea party. Sleaford Lionesses will be sending out invitations soon.

“It is a special year and we hope that with the support of the public we can celebrate by improving the lives of some of the people in Sleaford and district,” said Mrs Kyte.
