Wetherby Lions were privileged to receive a visit at this week’s meeting from District Governor Lion Andrew Kerr Sutherland.
DG Sutherland travelled south from Edinburgh to witness the handing over of a £5,000 cheque to the Yorkshire Air Ambulance - the Wetherby Lions’ chosen charity - as a result of May’s Beer Festival in the town.
Receiving a commemorative Wetherby Lions pennant from Lion President Tim Ritson, DG Sutherland paid tribute to the local efforts, saying: “This is what the Lions are all about - service to others. We are all Lions for different reasons but with one common aim - to be of service to our communities. Wetherby clearly does this very well.”
