Lions Clubs’ target to feed a million

THE Lions Multiple District of South Africa was invited by Food Forward of Pick n Pay to support an initiative in support of Mandela Day.

The aim of the project is to feed the hungry and commemorate an icon who did so much for this country.

As part of the Lions motto of “We Serve” Lions Clubs throughout the length and breadth of South Africa joined forces in support of this project.

Lion members manned the entrances of Pick n Pay stores and requested customers to make a donation of non- perishable food items that were displayed on plastic bags supplied by Food Forward. The Uitenhage Lions Club joined the project collecting at Pick and Pay Penford.

“It is with sincere appreciation that the Uitenhage Lions Club wishes to thank all who made donations. The local donations amounted to 21% of the total collection of stores throughout South Africa,” said Wayne Kilian, president of the Uitenhage Lions Club.
