Shrewsbury Lions Club to support After School Programme




Following on from  2010 initiatives proposed by the Project Manager of St. John’s Mission in Batticaloa, Sri Lanka, Shrewsbury Lions club has decided to support one of the After School Programmes for a period of one year at a total cost of roughly £1044. This is in addition to the Kiran Nutritional Feeding Centre that is being supported with your donations. The Project manager has been informed of this decisions and he should be sending us a brief on the programme sometime in the near future.

Shrewsbury Lions club is now registered as a charity, as such donations to the Sri Lankan Orphanage  are eligible to claim gift aid.
