From The Lions’ Den…
We may all be in lockdown but Stowmarket Lions are still very much here and providing help to those who need it in and around Stowmarket.
In the extraordinary times of the past weeks, Stowmarket Lions have so far helped more than 50 people who have been unable to get to a pharmacy to collect their medication. With the agreement of pharmacies at Boots in the town, at StowHealth on Violet Hill and at Combs Ford, in cases of need we have been able to collect medication on their behalf and deliver it to their homes. Having someone to talk to, even if only for a short time, is an added bonus for those who have had little or no daily contact during lockdown and is a great morale booster, both for them and the Lion making the delivery.
When the Combs Ford Surgery closed, Stowmarket Lions were also able to take some local residents to Violet Hill Surgery for essential tests or treatment when they would otherwise have been unable to get there.
Even in these difficult times, Stowmarket Lions are still out there helping and supporting those in need wherever possible within the government guidelines and hope to return to full engagement with the community as soon as possible.
