Lions launch 100 Bag Challenge

Ironbridge & Severn Gorge Lions have launched their annual Christmas
Food Appeal, which enables the club to donate food parcels to those
families and individuals in crisis over the Christmas period. In 2020 the
club collected over 4.5 tonnes of non-perishable foodstuffs which
translated into some 450 food parcels.

The number of families in crisis this winter is likely to reach a new high
this year and we need help to collect as much food as possible.

To this aim we have launched the 100 BAG CHALLENGE. We want
100 individuals, families, friends, workmates, or groups to donate a bag
of non-perishable foodstuffs. When the bag is ready give us a call and
we will collect it.

The collected bags alongside the food collected via our street collections
and Santa and his sleigh’s visits to local supermarkets will make a great
difference to Christmas for many in our local communities.

If you can help, or want to know more, please contact either Graham
Powell 07887 638207, email grahamlion@btinternet.com or Colin
Thompson 07970 417497, email cthompson@bcs.org.uk

Ironbridge Lions are Volunteers, enabling individuals and groups to build
better communities. If you are interested in helping us to do that, just
call. We would love to talk to you.
