Wetherby District Lions Club is awarded ‘Charitable Incorporated Organisation’ status by the Charity Commission after six months after applying.
This means that:
the Lions now has a legal personality of its own, enabling it to conduct business in its own name;
the members and trustees are personally safeguarded from the financial liabilities.
Wetherby Lions can now go on to present ‘big and better’ events and raise more money for local charities
