Oswestry Lions Club has supported The Movement Centre with a kind donation of £6250.
This year, Lions around the world are joining in the celebration of 100 Years of Service of Lions Clubs International. Lions Clubs International is the world’s largest charitable service organisation with more than 1.4 million members in approximately 46,000 clubs in more than 200 countries and geographical areas around the world.
“Oswestry Lions Club is pleased to support The Movement Centre in its pioneering work,” said Maureen Ross, Chair of Oswestry Lions Club. “This has been made possible by the generosity of the people of the town in donating to the Lions during fundraising events.”
Lions Club of Oswestry regularly fund and aid many good causes, supporting town and district events, bursaries and competitions within schools, donating to and via other charitable and public service organisations and to many individuals in their time of need over the last 42 years.
“We are so thankful to Oswestry Lions Club for their generous contribution towards our work”, said Pauline Holbrook, Director and Clinical Lead, at The Movement Centre. “Donations like this enable us to continue providing Targeted Training therapy, which makes a huge difference to the children and their families.”
Targeted Training is unique to The Movement Centre. As it is a specialist therapy it sits outside of the remit for standard NHS funding. This means that we rely on the generous support of donors and fundraisers. It is only with this support that we can continue to make a different to the lives of children and families throughout the UK.
