The latest project for Yateley Lions is Helping Harry.
Harry Boyce is a young lad, living in Yateley who suffers from Periventricular Leukomalacia and Cerebral Palsy. An operation is available at The St. Louis Children’s Hospital, Missouri, USA, which is called a selective dorsal rhizotomy. This operation would enable Harry to start walking un-aided, and is exactly the same operation at the same hospital where Charlie Adams http://www.charlieschallengestepbystep.co.uk had his successful operation, which made such an improvement to his life. We wish to support Harry to give him the opportunity of similar life changing improvements. For further information, please follow the link to Harry’s Website http://www.helpingharry.net or contact us using the link on the left hand side. Donations can be made out to Yateley Lions, please mark the back of the cheque with “Helping Harry” and remember to include your name and address, so that Harry can reply, or directly to Helping Harry using Paypal via the web site.

We were delighted to help, making and arranging various donations and assisting with a stall at The May Fayre.

clothing and household appliances, checks them as
necessary and then distributes them through Social
Services, Health Visitors and Lions Clubs to those
in need. Situated in Fleet, the Community Store is
helped by Fleet Lions, with assistance from other
Lions Clubs in this area.
of the elderly and disabled also ranks high
amongst the aims of our club. During the Christmas
period the elderly often feel lonely and
forgotten. We organise Christmas parties in 2
homes for the elderly, with the help of the
delightful singing from the choir of Charles
Kingsley School in Eversley. We also give
Christmas gifts to the residents of two other
sheltered accommodation homes in Yateley.
