Ruislip Lions Aid Hillingdon Food Bank
For some time now we have collected food for Hillingdon Food Bank and members of the Club have also helped sort and pack in the centre as you will be aware; this need locally continues to grow.
Clothing for Hillingdon Women’s Refuge
Following the donating of children’s clothing to Hillingdon Women’s refuge one of our Lions suggested we should collect clothing for homeless adults in dire need in this freezing weather. Two lions stepped up to the plate and contributed several bags of high quality clothing. At that point, the outlet where we donated stopped collecting. However now TRINITY HOMELESS a local charity let us know they require specific clothing as there are some real needs: Jeans, T-shirts, jumpers, winter coats, socks (they get through 100 pairs a week), underpants (80 pairs a week are used) Rucksacks and holdalls. If you have any contributions give us a call.

The Club carries out a number of Service activities during the year where individuals or groups of people are helped, including the Wren Club, Film nights for Sheltered Home clients, Young Carers support, Food Bank collections and assisting with collections at supermarkets for other charities.
Our newest service activity is our Hillingdon Carers Café in Ruislip.Hillingdon Carers popular drop in Carers cafes are operating with great success in Uxbridge, Northwood, Harefield and Hayes but no café was available in Ruislip. Ruislip Lions have taken the initiative and a new café is now open, sponsored by and staffed by Ruislip Lions volunteers. It is open between 1.30pm to 3pm every 3rd Monday in the month at Ruislip Manor Methodist Church, Torrington Road, Ruislip Manor. The café is a place for people who are caring for a family member or friend to relax, meet other carers, talk to experienced staff and volunteers, seek advice and swap good news or share ideas about dealing with some of the challenges of caring. Any carer can just drop in, no appointment is needed.
