Every Christmas time the members of Ross on Wye Lions Club ask the staff of Hereford Hospital Children’s Ward if there is anything they need to make a difference for the children who are not well enough to be at home. This year Play Leader Stacey Edwards said that what was really needed was a new pool table. The Lions had donated one a few years ago, but it had been so well-used it needed to be replaced.
No sooner said than done, Andy Walker of Ross Lions set about organising the delivery of a brand new table. It was expertly constructed by Andy with help from Keith, Paul, Nick and Adam from Ross Youth Lions. The table is now in place and can be used by young patients and their visitors, as the Lions were told by one grandparent “I can tell you it is a great table and I enjoyed playing a game while I was visiting!” Ross Lions are keen to help young people and anyone who knows of any projects that they can help with then please get in touch.
