Lions Margo Whitmore and Jimmy Hollows recently received a request from a very needy and deserving family to assist with a wheelchair. Both parents in the family are wheelchair bound and have a variety of other medical ailments as well, including diabetes. The club was delighted to be able to donate a wheelchair to the Perumal family. We’re very grateful to the Rotary Club of Umhlanga who provided the wheelchair to the club and enabled us to serve the community together with this very helpful donation.
A photo of the wheelchair handover is below:

The 2012 North Durban Lions Christmas Concert was again a huge success – several hundred members of the community enjoyed a fantastic evening with the Durban City Orchestra, Lenny Bowes and Jason Bird, doing a selection of Christmas favourites and feel-good tunes. The club raised valuable funds for those in need – we would like to thank everyone who came along on the evening for your generous and fantastic support.
