Weymouth and Portland Lions club have responded to an appeal by donating £1000 to help fight Ebola.

Over 167 Clubs and 8,000 Lions are situated in the affected countries, and the donation comes after the news that Lions Clubs International Foundation has just provided a £93,000 grant to Ebola Aid.

Members of Lions clubs across the world have pledged their support for the orphaned children of Ebola victims by donating funds to help feed and clothe them, and provide sanitation.
