One of the bigger jobs in (surprise, surprise!) connected with Lions. Not long before we took ourselves off I was chatting with one of my fellow Lions - the one who used to investigate grant applications - and he said that he saw little point in continuing his membership of the Lions Club as he now had nothing to contribute and no job to do. I suggested he should revisit an idea we discussed briefly a year or more ago - funding some sort of project for young carers. Geoff being Geoff, I now have a great stack of paperwork - all to back up a proposal that we pay some £2,500 to provide a short residential break this summer for a dozen young carers in the 8 - 10 year age range. I have no doubt we shall get this approved very easily at the next business meeting.
And now I must get the dog out for her afternoon walk. More tomorrow.
