Christmas Vouchers thanks yous

This year despite the impact of Covid-19, which meant we couldn’t out on any of our fund raising events, we still managed to deliver 250 £20 supermarket vouchers to deserving people

1 On behalf of my sister Betty I would like to Thankyou for the £20.00 gift voucher for Tescos you delivered to her.
On Saturday her daughter took Betty to Tescos where she enjoyed buying her little Christmas goodies.
Thank you to all you Lions that have worked so hard in this difficult year to still help the the older community of Guildford 
Merry Xmas to you all stay safe and well and let’s pray that 2021 brings us a safer life to enjoy next year.
Best wishes

2 I am writing on behalf of my mother Wendy, to thank you so much for the Christmas shopping voucher you posted through our door today.  My mother unfortunately suffered a stroke recently and had to spend a few days in hospital. Fortunately she has made a very good recovery, and she was so pleased and grateful to receive the card and voucher from you this morning.  As a one time volunteer of the Guildford Lions hospital radio service when based at St. Lukes, I would like to thank you once again for your very kind gesture, and to wish you a very happy Christmas and best wishes for the New year.

6 Hello Peter
Thanks again for all the support in enabling vouchers to be offered to individuals and families again this year.
As 2020 draws to a close, it’s been a difficult time for many as you will know, so offering a small gesture of kindness, via the vouchers – has been very uplifting.
Jo and Briony had many thanks whilst out delivering. We also received an email from a gentleman I know well – he was very happy with ‘his surprise’ and thanked us all.
Please pass on your very best wishes to all at Guildford Lions Peter, your work continues to be engaging, meaningful and totally outstanding!
Let us hope December 2021 will be a very different place!
Take care,
Tracy, Briony and Jo Community Wellbeing Team 01483 444150 – Guildford office
