Sleaford and District Lioness Club held a fashion show with M & Co Fashions on Southgate, Sleaford last Wednesday.

Over £350 was raised for local charity, The Walter Hrubesch Foundation, to help young drug addicts.

At their latest meeting, following a talk by members of Sleaford’s Evergeen Elderly befriending Service the Lioness presented them with £500.

Lioness Anne Moyes has just returned from a three-week trip to Zimbabwe where she delivered black and blue bras donated by the club to student teacher Forgiveness Myers.

Anne’s cousin teaches children with learning disabilities in Chegutu, Zimbabwe. The bras will be sold cheaply by Forgiveness to fellow students, with proceeds going towards paying her college fees after the Zimbabwean government ordered all female teachers and police officers to wear a black bra in the interests of modesty, but few of them can afford to buy one.
