The Lions Club St Andrew’s joined in the national relief effort to assist the islands that were recently ravaged by hurricanes Irma and Maria.
The club solicited the support of the students of some of the schools around St Andrews and received a very encouraging response from the St. Joseph’s Convent Grenville, SJC St Andrew’s Anglican Secondary school, SAASS St. Mary’s R.C. at La. Fillette, St Michael’s R. C. Byelands and the School for Special Education.
The club undertook a walkathon throughout the rural communities of St. Andrew’s and collected almost five thousand dollars, which will be handed over to NaDMA in the coming week geared at the relief effort.
The members have also pledged their personal contribution as suggested by the Lion District Governor Sherwin Greenidge of Barbados.
These monies will be wired directly to the affected islands where the Lions Club has a membership.
Governor Greenidge pledges to continue to assist the storm-battered islands until the crisis is over.
The Club wishes to thank all persons who have contributed to the relief drive so far and encourages others to make their contribution.
