New Year is starting

Our new Lionistic year starts tomorrow but we had our Changeover ceremony on Wednesday (28th) and our new President, Lion Paula Batchelor, took on the mantle and rallied the members with a challenge to induct five new members during her year of office.  She is also keen to raise public awareness of the good works we do.

Our outgoing President marked the end of his year by selecting the winners of the Annual Quiz Sheet run during his year;  marking the service to the community of all the members present; passing the proceeds from the Charity Golf Day of £1700 to local charity, “Sonny’s Army” and made a donation of £6,000 to the Lions Brain Tumour Research Appeal which will fund over two days of Research.  These funds were the result of a year of fundraising including almost £1,200 from the sale of Quiz Sheets and over £1,600 from the sale of secondhand jewellery.
