IT was cel­e­bra­tions all round when Knowle and Dor­ridge Lions Club marked its 40th suc­cess­ful year in Septem­ber with a pre­sen­ta­tion evening at the Greswolde Ho­tel in Knowle.

The club has raised more than £ 69,000 for char­ity over the past 12 months through its Knowle Fun Run, Fes­tive Walk and Bike Ride.

Past Pres­i­dent Richard Buck­ley thanked spon­sors and also ap­pealed for new mem­bers.

He said: “It’s great for our club of only 20 vol­un­teer Lions to cel­e­brate such suc­cess again, but with­out the help from com­pa­nies our events would never re­alise so much for char­ity.’

A full list of or­gan­i­sa­tions sup­ported this year and how to nom­i­nate a lo­cal cause can be found at www.knowl­e­and­dor­ridge­­i­ties

Two char­i­ties, Head­way Birm­ing­ham and Soli­hull and Breast Can­cer Haven, will ben­e­fit from funds raised at the forth­com­ing Lions Fes­tive Walk on Wed­nes­day De­cem­ber 27 and Knowle Fun Run on Sun­day, May 20 2018 .
