Being the president of a Lions Club gives the office holder some uplifting moments. I was lucky enough to experience one such earlier this morning.
Some few months ago, Brighton Lions Club was approached by the mother of a 9 year old child who suffers from cerebral palsy and epilepsy. We were asked if we could help with the cost, some £1,300, of a specially built tricycle to enable the young girl to get out and about and to exercise her legs. We agreed to pay the whole cost and Father Christmas delivered the trike so it was waiting for Ceydra on Christmas Day.
Father Christmas asked Leo the Lion to visit Ceydra just to make sure everything was alright. Luckily the rain stopped when Leo called round this morning and I was delighted to be there as well.
It's just what Lions do!
