STOP PRESS –
Our CHARITY FASHION SHOW on 28th June 2019 at Stafford Rangers Social Club was a great success raising over £500 for charity.

 

In April we undertook a litter pick on the Isobel Trail and Doxey Marshes.  We collected 15 bags of rubbish.

on Match 24th Stafford Lions Club organised a free party for adult carers which was a great success.  Our guests were treated to dancing from the superb Stafford Steppers, good music from Alan Thomas, table top quizzes, a game of bingo a lovely afternoon tea and a free raffle prize.  We are grateful to Stafford Rangers Social Club or allowing us to use one of their halls.

Our  Baswich Food Collection in January was a great success, with the community being very generous.  We then distributed food to the needy or elderly people in Stafford and surrounding villages.


Diabetes Awareness:
At our free ‘Diabetes and Health Check’ at ASDA last June we tested more than 60 people and it resulted in 9 people being referred to their GPs for further testing.  29 people were diagnosed as a ‘High Risk’ of diabetes and 2 at a ‘Very High Risk’ of diabetes.
