Lions save weekend away

Whitby and District Lions were able to help 12 children with disabilities go on an adventure weekend.

Interactive has been organising the weekend for years but funding for it had run out and it looked like the trips might have to stop - until the Lions stepped in and donated £1200 to make sure it could carry on for this year at least.

The Lions hand out between £12,000 and £15,000 each year to local causes and hold fundraising events throughout the year - the main one being the Boxing Day Dip.
