Our Secretary Sue Whyborn (on the right) presented a cheque for £150 to Beverly Harris, Manager of the Wiltshire Mind Charity shop in Melksham, in recognition of the good work they do in our community.
Wiltshire Mind is a local independent Mental Health Charity based in Melksham and provides County-wide services. It is a charity that relies exclusively on donations and fundraising to generate the income needed to provide their mental health services
They have helped so many people in our area, a very worthwhile cause.
They have also been supporting Melksham Lions by donating items to us for the homeless that we continue to support in Melksham.
Lion President Keith Mead today presented a cheque to Sarah Morris, of the St John Ambulance, in payment for first aid courses for the local Shed Club to enable them to continue their good work in the local community.
