In June 2020, The Treetop Foundation received its largest donation to date. Kenilworth Lions kindly donated hundreds of thousands of pencils and art crayons, 55 hospital mattresses, hospital beds, medical equipment, a wheelchair, mugs and many other items. These items will be distributed amongst schools in and a medical centre in the remote, poverty-stricken town of Tombodu, Sierra Leone. The generous donation is set to be shipped out as soon as travel restrictions have been lifted.
Kenilworth Lions is the largest Lions Club in the region. It is part of the Lions Clubs International (LCI) organisation, operating in 200 countries around the world. Kenilworth Lions organise and run three of the largest and best-loved events in the Kenilworth community calendar – the Grand Show in June, the outdoor Carol concert just before Christmas, and the famous Boxing Day Duck Race. They also organise smaller and one-off events through the year as well as running a Second-Hand Furniture Store and Bazaar from premises in Farmer Ward Road throughout the year.
As a result of the continuous hard work of the club members, the Kenilworth Lions Club has become a significant donor to many local charities and organisations with total donations now approaching £50,000 a year!
We’re excited and proud to announce that Kenilworth Lions have decided to continue their support of The Treetop Foundation Charity.
