We wish to thank all our 20+ teams this year who submitted great cases and while some did not meet the criteria of the Den we hope to be able to support some of them through the broader work of Lions.
The Lions motto is “We serve!” and that’s exactly what we’ve been doing locally since the 1960’s, now we want to help our community help themselves through supporting local and sustainable community projects.A rare chance for voluntary and community organisations to present their ideas to a panel with a chance of winning financial or other support…
