The members delivered face masks, aprons, protective gowns and gloves to Hylands Retirement Home in Filey, The Woodlands at Primrose Valley, Pinfold Lodge in Hunmanby and Hazelgarth Lodge in Hunmanby

The Lions have also donated a Samsung tablet and an iPad to Silver Birches care home on Station Avenue.

The club hope the technology will allow the care home residents to talk to their friends and relatives while no visitors are allowed.
