Lion Aid For the Basics Bank

BB letter

As well as help with collecting and sorting food during these challenging times Eastleigh Lions have donated funds to help Eastleigh Basics Bank. 

This is from their website:

The coronavirus attack is having a huge impact on all our lives and hundreds of people in our area are experiencing job insecurity, illness and isolatiion. Shopping, even online, is not an option for many.

Demand for our services has exploded since March and we’ve already provided food for 2,457 people this year – more than in the whole of 2019.   People in Eastleigh have been incredibly generous and we continue to receive donations of both food and money to keep our show on the road.   With the support of One Community delivery volunteers we are now providing food and household supplies (basic toiletries and cleaning products) to around 120 people a week from Eastleigh, Bishopstoke, Fair Oak, Chandler’s Ford and beyond.

We fed 2,451 people during 2019 and we’ve fed over 21,000 people since we first opened in 2011.
