Lions’ gift helps car service

Todmorden Lions’ president Rod Wainwright and Lion Audrey Blackburn presented a cheque for £200 to Sandra Makin, manager of the Todmorden and upper valley branch of the social car service.

The Lions, which raises money to help local good causes throughout each year, while offering fun and friendship in the process, gave the money to help the valuable service it provides for people continue.

The service is based at the Todmorden Working Men`s Social Club, Halifax Road. Many people each week use the service to take them on various trips and journeys thanks to the volunteer drivers who give their time freely.

The service can be contacted by telephoning 01706 813366.
