Lions reach out to community

The Fish Hoek Lions Club has been busy during lockdown, helping those in need with food, masks and treats.

Club president Sue Kinnell said lockdown had put their annual Easter egg project on hold but not before several schools had donated more than 2 000 Easter eggs so it was decided to give the eggs to some local feeding schemes – Sinethemba School, iThemba Pre-school, The Jones Safe House, Victory Kids Pre-school, the Samantha Deacon Masi Feeding Scheme, Groundbreakers in Ocean View and Kids Food Kitchen in Ocean View.

Lions also donated masks, sanitiser, gloves and food to the Happy Valley Shelter in Simon’s Town.

Fish Hoek Lions members also made 80 cloth masks for the Grade 7s at Ukhanyo Primary School in Masiphumelele and Happy Valley Shelter residents got behind their sewing machines to help. 

The masks were handed to the school principal, Michael Tyhali, last week when schools were supposed to open.

“Despite all the bad things going on with Covid-19 and lockdown, there are still some positives happening out there,” said Ms Kinnell.
