PONTELAND LIONS’ PRESENTATION TO MACMILLAN NURSES SUPPORT GROUP
Ponteland Lions’ President John Morris recently presented a cheque for £1000 to The MacMillan Nurses’ Support Group.
Based within the Newcastle area, the group raises funds for MacMillan Nurses, to help provide vital care and support for cancer patients.
John paid tribute to the the residents of Ponteland, expressing his thanks for their generosity over the past year. Their support has enabled Ponteland Lions to raise funds not only for the MacMillan Nurses, but also the RNLI, Leonard Cheshire Disability and a number of other local charities and worthy causes, including sponsorship of students embarking on community work abroad as part of their gap year.
Two of the many local charities Ponteland Lions wish to help this coming year are The Bubble Foundation, which funds the work of the Children’s Bone Marrow Unit at the RVI and The Charlie Bear for Cancer Care unit based at the Freeman Hospital.
