Hornsea Lions toast another successful year

An enjoyable social evening was held at Hornsea Golf Club on Friday, June 28, as outgoing Lions president Jean Robinson presented commendation certificates to two lions, Christine Coggrave and Ken Thorpe, and all the shop volunteers.

She also presented the Presidents’ Cup to Ken for his sterling work as the club treasurer.

Jean was able to tell everyone what a successful year it had been for the Lions, with the club making a total of £107,313.59 in donations to various groups in the area and also to the Lions Clubs International Foundation.

She then handed over the chain of office to Lion Michael Parry.

On behalf of the club, he thanked Jean for doing an excellent job and presented her with a plaque to mark the occasion. He then handed over the vice-president’s chain to Lion Ken Thorpe.

Unusually, there was a further handover ceremony when zone chairman Jenny Eldred handed over to past president Joan Gales.

All members expressed their best wishes to all the new officers.
