Brighouse Lions were delighted to enrol new member Anne O’Connor at the group’s February meeting.
During the meeting, members voted to distribute funds raised at the Brighouse Street Markets to various charities. Those chosen were: Brighouse Salvation Army, Brighouse Rest Centre, Central Methodist Church for its Open Doors Lunches, Cancer Research UK and Yorkshire Air Ambulance.
Guest speaker Alison Sykes gave a talk about the work being carried out for local homeless people and the efforts being made to get shelter for people or keep them comfortable until accommodation is found.
The Lions were able to give Sainsbury’s vouchers to help the work to feed, clothe or transport these people to safe places.
