We are a group of men and women of all ages and backgrounds who meet on a regular basis to enjoy the company of good friends, share a meal and use our energies, humour and professional skills to make a real difference to the lives of others.These projects can be in the local community or for a wider national or international cause.
Our weekly meeting is held on Monday evening at Louth Golf Club and is relaxed and friendly, making all our guests feel welcome and at ease.
As a club we are very active. We jointly organise the local bonfire event with the Lions. Whilst this is not primarily to raise money, any profit is ploughed back into the community.
We have participated in both of the Victorian and Christmas Markets raising further funds for local and international needs. We purchased empty shoe boxes which when filled by the local community, we transported to a collection centre for distribution in Romania in time for Christmas. We have transported members of the local community to their Christmas Meals to various destinations including the Salvation Army on Christmas Day.
Following Christmas we collected natural Christmas Trees from around the Louth area. This year the trees will be used by East Lindsey Council for the rebuilding and stabilising of the coastal sand dunes. Earlier in the spring we held a concert in St.James Church with an Internationally known star and more recently a concert given by the Louth Male Voice Choir, together with two Military Wives Choirs. The proceeds of these concerts will help finance our support of the local community.
We also are involved in joint projects with several local junior and senior schools, helping their development as individuals and teamwork as well as their awareness of charitable needs of our local community. The Go-Ryle project will encourage local youth teams to do good in their communities during the summer break. The judges will assess their work in the early autumn and there will be a substantial cash prize for the team with the best overall results.
These are just a few of the projects carried out in our year. For details of our forthcoming events please see the Club Diary.
