Harrow & Pinner Lions grant awarded

The Corona pandemic is hurting lots of local people in lots of different ways - just because we as Lions are social distancing doesn’t stop us from caring - we wanted to be part of the “Help Harrow” project and applied for a share of £100,000 in grants from the Lions Clubs Foundation of the British Isles to help us do that.
Harrow and Pinner Lions were successful in gaining a grant of £1000 from Lions Clubs Foundation (LCI) and are delighted to say that the grant was utilised to support Harrow Community Transport with the work they are carrying out in delivering food parcels to the most vulnerable people in Harrow.  Along with the council, local businesses and other members of the voluntary sector, Harrow Community Transport has helped to ensure that the most at risk people in Harrow have received the food parcels they need in this time of crisis. The “Feeding Harrow” operation to date includes delivery of over 9,000 food deliveries, 52 tons of bulk food delivery to the hubs making up the parcels and more than 495 hours of service.

Gerry Devine, Chair of Trustees Harrow Community Transport said:
“Recent events have moved us even closer to serving those in need in the community in ways we would not have dreamed of only a couple of months ago, and it is heartening to know that we have such great support from the Harrow and Pinner Lions in recognition of this. The donation came at a critical time when our cash flow from regular activities had almost dried up and we were seriously contemplating having to use our very small reserve fund to survive. The £1000 grant from the Lions LCI fund has allowed Harrow Community Transport to continue its work in this time of crisis.
