This event is in aid of a school bus for the West Riding Primary School. Learners at this school are from a multi-cultural community, mainly from a low socio-economic background or single parent and/or single income homes. Therefore extra funding from parents is impossible, and even payment of school fees is irregular at best. The educators give admirable care to their learners. Not only do they give of their private time to develop the children’s progress thus reaching high pass rates, they have also introduced a feeding scheme providing breakfasts, lunches, and even food parcels for some pupils to take home.
Table View Lions
Lions Clubs – we help where help is needed in our own communities and around the world. The world’s largest service club organization.
Lions give Sight, serve youth, assist the aged, the disabled, the disadvantaged. In fact wherever there is a need there are Lions.
Everywhere we work, we make friends. With children who need schoolbooks, with seniors who need transportation and with people we may never meet.
We’re led by talented, dedicated volunteer leaders from around the world. And, we’re supported by the Lions Clubs International Foundation (LCIF), which helps to fund Lions humanitarian projects.
