Trussell Trust donation 2016

Melksham Lions Support Trussell Trust

Each Christmas The Trussell Trust takes thousands of shoe boxes filled with presents to some of the poorest people in Eastern Europe.

People of all ages receive boxes, ranging from Roma people living in freezing conditions and struggling to survive,  to abandoned and orphaned children living in state care.

In what has now become an annual event for Melksham Lions, Lions Joan and Peter Dauncey took shoe boxes donated by our members to  Salisbury for distribution by the Trust.

In addition to the shoe boxes, a total of £120 was donated on behalf of the Melksham Lions club by Joan Dauncey to Richard Parsons Overseas Co-Ordinator for the Trussell Trust.
