The club would like to thank its generous sponsors for making the evening possible:

  • Marshall Security Guarding Division
  • Marshall Security Armed Response Division
  • Bay Union Employee Benefit Consultants
  • CBI Electric/African Cables
  • Flowers on Kensington

Some photos of the event are below:

Popcorn Machine Hire

The club was asked to provide popcorn at a private super-hero themed party on Saturday 5 April. We received an extremely generous donation towards the club’s service to those in need. Many thanks to Di of Vuzu Entertainment for thinking of us and getting us involved.

Lions Ian Ross and Neil Aubert served the popcorn, which was a big hit. They’re wearing super-hero capes in the photo, although of course, all Lions are super-heroes!

Further postponement of the North Durban Lions Music and Market Day

The North Durban Lions Music and Market Day had been rescheduled for 24 September – but unfortunately it will not be possible to provide most of the entertainment which was planned for the day. The club has rather postponed the day to a later date, yet to be decided on – either around Christmas or relatively early in the new year.

The club would like thank everyone who was planning to come along to the day and support the club in its efforts to raise funds to assist those in need. Its unfortunate that we’ve had to postpone the day again, but the circumstances make it unavoidable.

The new date will of course be published and advertised once it is decided.
