It was an easy decision when Asda at Ashington asked the Lions Club of Morpeth to see if they wanted to be the recipient of their green token scheme run before Christmas. The answer, of course, was ‘YES,PLEASE’.
The Club see this as an acknowledgement of the assistance it has given to Ashington families over the years. At the tills customers are given a token to put into one of three collection boxes for local charities.
As a result Morpeth Lions have just been presented with a cheque for £200 and Lion David Armstrong went along to Asda to receive it. David said
“This is most welcome and a great boost to the Lion’s charity work coming straight after Christmas when funds are low.”
Morpeth Lions are now in discussion with Asda to see if it is possible to do a bag pack later in the year.
