The Louth Lions have welcomed their new president into the role for 2015/16, and thanked Jayne Jacklin for her service over the past year.

New president Mark Langley said: “It gives me great pleasure to take over as the 47th President of Louth and District Lions, and I thank the members for the confidence shown in me to 
take on this role.

“I’ve been a member of Lions for five years, living in Tetney, and working for a large healthcare company, which involves lots of travel.

“On a local level, we are proud to serve the local community through fundraising and other community events, such as the Louth Bike night, Duck Race and, for the first time last year, Santa’s Sleigh, and use the collected funds for many worthy causes.”

Outgoing president Jayne Jacklin said: “I have enjoyed my year as president. It has been absolutely fabulous, and I’ve been well supported by the club members and the town.

“We have raised over £14,000 over the past year which is distributed to local good causes.

“I think Mark will be an excellent president, and I wish him luck for the year ahead.”

Mr Langley said: “My aims for this year are to continue the great work we do in raising funds for 
needy causes.

“In addition, I would like to further develop our links with youth in the area, and increase the membership of our club.

“We are always on the look out for new members who can spare a few hours a month to help those less fortunate than themselves.”
