Andrea Hespel, president of the Lions Club of Hout Bay, says they will no longer provide beneficiaries with donations of flowers.
“The members of Lions Club of Hout Bay advise beneficiary churches, funeral organisers, people and charities supporting the aged, ill at home and in hospital, that there will no longer be flowers available from the Lions for related occasions,” she said.
The vendor has withdrawn the privilege from Lions Club and allocated a daily collection to a group of other charities.
The Lions Club is unable to ascertain the names and contact details of those charities, so are unable to provide contact details.
Ms Hespel apologised to beneficiaries for inconvenience caused.
