I joined Lions because…

‘I joined several years ago, in a manner of saying “It really was being in the right place at the right time.” The mayor knew I helped with stage lighting and suggested my services would be useful to the Lions. I enjoyed helping out so much that I never left! I enjoy being part of a club that benefits the local people in so many ways and I enjoy using my technical ability to help provide a service back to the community. I now volunteer within District 105SW as PR & Communication officer’ Trevor Munro,  Ivybridge
