Billingshurst and Districts Lion Club has appealed to people, clubs and firms in the area to donate to help those affected by the typhoon in the Philippines.

The club itself has contributed £3000 to Lions Clubs International Foundation disaster relief.

It also plans to donate the takings from December’s Jengers Mead bookshop to the appeal.

A spokesperson for the Lion Club said: “Lions Clubs provide a global network - 1.3 million members - that is able to give immediate practical and financial support when such disasters strike.”

The Lion Club is also appealing for new members. For more information, telephone president Mike Bobker on 01403 783809.
