1. EYE CAMP APPEAL Rutland Lions are raising money for an eye camp in Nepal . So far with the help of Edwinstowe they have raised £1600 towards a target of £2000. 100 cataract operations can be performed with £2000 (£20 each). The £2000 does not stop there. Think of all the further operations that can be performed with more donations, improving the quality of life for so many people. Can I ask each and every club to consider making a donation to Rutlands appeal. Lets support Rutland and the eye camps and I thank you all in anticipation. Please make cheques payable to "Rutland Lions" and send to their secretary

The environment wins as people back litter-picking and turn away from single-use plastic. Over 70% of people now view tackling litter as more important than they used to and 75% feel more appreciative of people who pick up litter, according to a new survey carried for Keep Britain Tidy by Ipsos MORI. More than 67% also said they tried to purchase less single-use plastic than they used to, and eight out of ten people said they thought people who litter-pick are vital to protecting the environment. For those who had seen or were aware of Blue Planet II, the figures are even higher proving how much of a cultural shift the programme has brought about: 47% said they would like to get involved in a litter pick, compared to only 17% of those who hadn’t seen or heard about it. We hope these findings inspire even more people to get involved in the country’s biggest-ever mass-action environmental campaign which aims to get 500,000 people out litter-picking. But you can act now & join our New Generation Lions Plastic Pick up on 11th & 12th May. Together, we can help create a litter-free environment for everyone to enjoy.
