New club hunts recruits
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.
