The Louth and District Lions have held a special event to mark 46 years of raising money for good causes in the local community.
The Lions held their annual event, the Charter Night, on Saturday February 28, and the occasion was enjoyed by all those who attended.
The Louth and District Lions President Jayne Jacklin welcomed guests from other Lions Clubs in the region to enjoy an exciting evening of “good food, great music and fabulous company” at Kenwick Park Hotel.
Among the guests in attendance were the Mayor of Louth Andrew Leonard and his consort Jill Makinson-Sanders, as well as Alan Hall (District Governor for Lions) and his wife.
In addition to celebrating the 46th birthday for Louth Lions, Alan Hall also presented two members of Louth and District Lions with special awards.
Derek Blow and Terry West have both given 30 years of service to Lions and they were presented with a special award in recognition of this.
Lion President Jayne Jacklin, who has been a Lion for the past 15 years, gave a speech where she announced that the club has raised a massive £11,000 over the past year for worthy causes, and added that she was extremely proud to be president of Louth and District Lions club and proud to have such supporting members.
Jayne Jacklin received the Lions International Pendant from District Governor Alan Hall on the night.
