On Thursday 30th January 2014 Hull Kingston Lions hosted their annual post Christmas party with over 150 OAP’S attending from all over Hull with a small contingent from Preston area, arranged as usual by Holderness Lions.
Our guests were all served a glass of sherry by our four musketeers, three being the new members of the club being very conspicuous not only by their age, and many of our OAP’S said how nice it was to be served in such a pleasant manner by what they saw as the young Lions of today. The fourth member of this younger element team was a student at Hull University who was a Lion in South Africa called Nastassja, who is our honorary Lion for a year, when she will return home.
During the evening the Mice entertained with some memorable songs which are always appreciated by all who attended giving a great evening enjoyed by all.
I should mention, before closing that the lady who did all the organising for the evening is Mrs Margaret Mc Donald who although not an actual Lion, has been a stalwart supporter of the Lions for many years and her name has to be mentioned.

Lion Cyril Brown MJF, has completed 50 years of service to Lions ClubsInternational, so a presentation to mark this wonderful achievement was made recently at a Garden Party held at a former member’s home. Lion Cyril has been Past President, Chairman of the Transport Committee, the Annual Food Collection and distribution of Christmas Parcels on behalf ofHull Kingston Lions.
Hull Kingston Lions have been serving the community of the City of Kingston upon Hull, along with the National and Global issues dealt with by the International Association of Lions Clubs and in order to continue to support the people in their time of need, they ask there members to continue the fund raising wherever there are Lions clubs.
Fifty years have passed since Hull Kingston Lions were formed to serve the people in the community of the City of Kingston upon Hull as well as the national & global calls taken care of by The International Association of Lions. Clubs and it is my honour and privilege as the serving President of the Club to thank the members for the work they performed under the banner of our great Association.
The members of Hull Kingston Lions Club were a group of ordinary people who did some amazing things during their stay with the Club I can recall the name of a particular member Alex Earle who interviewed me, assisted by my sponsor Ray Hodgson and I can say that the story of Lionism, as told to me by these two venerable Lions, soon convinced me that here was an opportunity to join this splendid band of men in helping people less fortunate than ourselves. I thanked these two Lions who have been called to higher service, for providing me with the splendid style of life they introduced me to.
Many of the activities that they ecouraged all of their fellow members to join in were as follows (in no paricular chronological order)
The Christmas food Collection at various stores around the City where the public bought extra items and placed them on a table, after which the items were counted and put in their various boxes and stored until the Lions were ready for the parcel packing at which the ladies came to help, initially making up to 400 parcels which were then delivered to needy people around the City, one can only imagine the faces of the recipients (and the endless cups of tea drunk by the Lions).
The annual Xmas party (usually held in late January as some of the attendees have a lot to do around Xmas). This event caters for over 150 oap’s, some disabled people with a group of blind people who are drawn together to be entertained by various singing groups who all then enjoy a buffet and a chat with friends old and new, to start off another year together.
