Lions can support the environment through tree planting, local litter picks and battery recycling.
Coventry Leofric Lions President Malcolm Knowles is a ‘bit of a local celebrity with his Sculptures made from scrap-he was recently interviewed by BBC Coventry and Warwickshire talking about his creations, you can see the clip here
For the Sporting Dinner this summer he created Penny Owl who was auctioned off and raised over £800 for the Lions Charity Account. He has also created raffle prizes for our Afternoon Tea where he crafted a bird table that caught many peoples eye. For this years “Not” The Donkey Derby he created twenty bird boxes, these have been donated to Coventry and Warwickshire Mind and they have been sold to raise funds for the charity as well as providing a safe home for countless birds next spring.
Showing that we can combine fundraising and supporting the environment both by providing homes to birds that need shelter and recycling unwanted items into decorative art and useful practical garden ornaments.Malcolm is leading the way with our Environmental Service Activities.
