Frome Lions handover a cheque for £250

Frome Lions have donated £250 to the Frome support group of the Macular Society. 

This is a new group to the Frome area just setting up, and it currently needs all the help and support to get up and running. Its aim is to help people with Macular degeneration and support for their families.

The group meet in a room at Health Centre every third Thursday at 10.30am for an hour and a half for social and practical help.

Macular degeneration is the most   common cause of vision loss of those aged over 50. It causes gradual loss of central vision and can occur within months or over many years, and effects things like reading, driving and make every day life very difficult.
