On Monday 6 June the De Grendel Lions Club received a generous donation of soccer kit from the Bothasig football club. This will be distributed to less fortunate clubs who do not have the necessary finances to purchase football kit.

This was for children from various places of safety in the area. The children had to look for the Easter Eggs which had been hidden in various locations on the fields. Afterwards they were treated to hot dogs, cold drinks and snacks. The De Grendel Lions wish to once again thank the Edgemead Primary School for the previous donation of Easter eggs which made this event possible.
On Saturday 16 April the Lions Club De Grendel held a Bag a Burger event at Wolraad Woltemade School in Bothasig. The event saw approximately 30 learners cleaning up litter around the school. Around 16 refuse bags filled with rubbish were collected. Afterwards the learners were treated to burgers and cold drinks. Wolraad Woltemade teacher Karen James assisted with organising the event.
The De Grendel Lions Club inducted two new members into their fold. A huge welcome to Glenda Hon and Roy McRobert. The De Grendel Lions wish them many happy years in the Lions.

Edgemead Primary School has done it once again by donating a very large amount of Easter Eggs to the De Grendel Lions Club for their Easter Egg Project. The Easter Eggs were distributed to many underprivileged retirement homes for the elderly and children’s homes in our community. The De Grendel Lions Club would like to extend a huge thank you to the Edgemead Primary School Principal, learners and the parents who have so generously donated Easter Eggs, allowing them to continue their Easter Egg project.
