Tenterden Lions roar with pride
Tenterden Lions Club presented a magnificent £2,500 cheque to Pilgrims Hospice Ashford last week. The Lions raised this amazing total with their much-loved Christmas float collections around Tenterden and surrounding villages.
The local club has supported Pilgrims Hospices over a number of years; like many people in the community, the club members appreciate the valuable service Pilgrims provide and the loving care given to their former Treasurer Lion, Reg Gray in 2015.
We wish to say a huge thank you to Tenterden Lions Club, they are truly helping us to make a difference to patients and their families who need our care.

Louise Newman, Pilgrims Ashford Community Fundraising Manager said: “We wish to say a huge thank you to Tenterden Lions Club, they are truly helping us to make a difference to patients and their families who need our care.”
Tenterden Lions Club was founded in 1957 and has been serving the local community for the past 60+ years in a variety of ways such as, planting bulbs every Autumn which come up in the High Street, Oaks Road, and St Michaels, organising an annual primary schools choir competition, and undertaking major fundraising projects such as the annual classic car show/dog show and the Christmas collections. This enables the club to support numerous local charitable causes including Pilgrims Hospices.
