A fantastic Christmas Concert

The North Durban Lions 2011 Christmas Concert (mentioned previously here) was a fantastic success. More than 350 adults and more than 75 children came along on the evening of Friday 16 December, leading to a terrific atmosphere. Many people came much earlier than the 18:00 start, in order to get a good seat, as they knew the event would be popular.

Lenny Bowes entertained the crowd, performing great classics and really setting a festive mood.

The Durban City Orchestra then played a magnificent set, including a variety of Christmas favorites and medleys – the entire crowd was rapt with attention during the performance.

In addition, there were a variety of market and food stalls selling a large range of terrific items.

The North Durban Lions club would like to thank each and every member of the public who came along and made it a great night. We would also like to express our deepest gratitude to the Pick n Pay Hyper-by-the-Sea, whose generous financial support enabled the event to be organised in the first.

The evening’s profits will be used to directly aid children’s projects and those for the elderly.

Thank you again to everyone who came and who contributed to making the concert and evening such a success – we’ll see you next year!

Some photos of the event are below.

Tree planting at Briardene Primary School

The North Durban Lions club planted 6 trees at the Briardene Primary School recently, continuing the club’s contribution to Lions Clubs International’s 1 Million Trees Campaign. The trees were generously donated by Mr Crispin Hemson of the University of KwaZulu Natal.

The school also provided an opportunity for the pupils to be told a little bit about Lions, which Zone Chair Denise Bolland addressed the pupils and staff about.

The school is very proactive and is constantly seeking to improve the educational experience of its pupils, despite most pupils being from disadvantaged backgrounds with few financial resources.

The North Durban Lions are proud to have been able to serve both the environment and the school and its pupils.
