SOLIHULL Lions have donated £500 to the local branch of the Grandparents’ Association after government funding was dropped for the support group.
On Thursday, March 7, association volunteer Lorraine Bushell was presented with the cheque by Lions president Alan James to help the Solihull branch continue to support local grandparents who have lost contact with their grandchildren.
“We’re terribly grateful,” said Lorraine. “We’ve been really struggling since losing the funding.”
The support group meet the first Thursday of every month, with the next session at the Methodist Church, in Station Approach, on April 4.
