Tring Lions have sponsored the installation of a defibrillator outside the Baptist Church in Tring High Street. Funds for the device have come from a bequest received from the estate of the Late Lion Ken Brennan who died last year at the age of 96.

The defibrillator is now 'live'

The installation has not been an easy process and Tring Lions would like to thank the Baptist Church, Tring Town Council and the Community Heartbeat Trust for their valuable support.

Did you know that there is a collection box for used spectacles at Specsavers in Dolphin Square? The contents are regularly collected by Tring Lions and sent to Chichester Lions. Here arrangements are made for them to be cleaned and graded and sent to eye camps around the world. In the last three years we have collected around 4700 pairs in Tring.
