We'd like to say a big thank you this Christmas to the President of the Whitchurch & District Lions Club and the Malpas branch club who have raised £1000 for Blind Veterans UK!
The clubs raised the £1000 through nine members of the club undertaking a sponsored walk across Morecombe Bay. The group was led by the the Queen's guide Cedric Robinson! The walk raised £800 and the clubs also organised a festive Christmas Gift Event which raised a total of £200.
Pictured in the cheque presentation from left to right is Whitchurch & District Club member Patricia Gallimore, Club President Dennis Woodfine, Blind Veterans UK regional fundraiser Viccie Beech and finally Billy Norgan with his daughter Lilly.
Following a tour of the centre, Billy and wife Kirsty are keen to do more fundraising for Blind Veterans UK after seeing how much our Llandudno Centre has to offer in terms of training and support for our members. We are looking forward to seeing what challenges they set themselves in the future and would like to thank them very much for their fundraising efforts!
