Members of East Elloe Lions Club do listen, and they’ve proved it with a kind gesture.

At the club’s last charter evening, members of the club heard a speech by a local woman fundraising for Great Ormond Street Hospital because a friend’s daughter had been treated there.

When they held their first quiz for a couple of years at the United Services Club in Holbeach it was decided that the proceeds would go to the hospital.

President Rob Mills – who took over from Piers Whiting at the club’s handover meeting this week – said: “It was the first one we have done for a long while, possible two years, and it went quite well.

“We were very happy with the response. Off the top of my head I think we raised just over £200. We have been looking at doing them on a more regular basis.”

Rob said there were about 13 tables filled with teams of four.

The Lions simply organised the quiz and people were able to buy drinks at the bar at the United Services Club.

Rob said: “We did it that was to keep costs down for us so that everything we raised could go to the charity.”

The club held its handover evening at The Swan at Moulton.
