New club hunts re­cruits

Accrington Observer - - NEWS -

A NEWLY-FORMED Li­ons club is ap­peal­ing for new mem­bers.

The Hyn­d­burn Cen­ten­nial Li­ons Club was formed earlier this year to mark the in­ter­na­tional or­gan­i­sa­tion’s cen­te­nary.

Char­ter pres­i­dent Tony Clark­son said they will work along­side the long-run­ning Ac­cring­ton Li­ons group to help dif­fer­ent parts of the com­mu­nity, and called on res­i­dents to get in­volved.

He said: “We are look­ing to do ser­vice work within the com­mu­nity for the whole of Hyn­d­burn. Hav­ing been a mem­ber of the other club for a long time there are ar­eas in this bor­ough that aren’t be­ing ser­viced and felt there was a need. Places like Knuz­den, Altham and Belthorn never see a Lion.

“This is an­other group. We are not look­ing to any­thing that would im­pinge upon them. It’s very much a fam­i­ly­ori­en­tated club and we have a num­ber of fam­ily mem­bers.”

The club will hold a fundrais­ing event at the Po­plar So­cial Club in Ac­cring­ton on Fri­day, Septem­ber 22. It will fea­ture Gary Ryan - a top Neil Di­a­mond trib­ute act - and in­clude a pie and peas sup­per. Doors will open at 7.30pm and tick­ets cost £12.50.
