Cheques were also sent to Marie Curie to help them expand the service to the local community and also to Mzuzu Lions Club in Malawi to assist their health care and education agenda.

Following a request from Julia Ward, a parent of a child at Parklands School, for assistance in purchasing specially designed tablets for use in the school Helensburgh Lions decided that rather than help we would buy all six tablets.

The Lions Club were delighted that Mia Ward, a pupil at Parklands School, and her mum Julia, Treasurer of the school Parent Council, came to the golf day to accept a cheque for £3594.  The money will be used to purchase six – Inclusive ClassMate with iSwitch -educational tablets which include special software and in particular facilities for use by the physically disabled.
