Eastwood Lions Club has received a share of £100,000 from the Lions Clubs Foundation of the British Isles. Lions Clubs across the British Isles have benefited from a special fund launched to support local communities during the COVID-19 crisis.
Eastwood Lions has utilised the grant to support Southend Hospital by supplying 25 two way monitors for the use in Intensive care so that nurses can comfort patients whilst staff are P.P.E. preparing. This could mean the world to someone who is alone and frightened at this critical time.
The monitors were delivered to the hospital on the 17th April, The presentation could not be done by Eastwood Lions club personally, due to the Lockdown, but Southend Hospital were kind enough to send the club confirmation that they had received the Monitors.
Eastwood Lions President Gary Fisher said: “This is a significant sum of money that we are putting to good use straight away.
This Coronavirus pandemic is hurting lots of local people in lots of different ways – just because we are all social distancing doesn’t stop us from caring – we are doing what we can, and this cash injection will help us do more.”
When a humanitarian crisis strikes, the Lions Clubs Foundation of the British Isles works with and are guided by their own Lions members who are ordinary people actively working at the heart of their communities.
