There was a litter picking session at the Pingle nature reserve and the Leos also collected rubbish in and around the bus stop.

Pre-loved spectacles are collected throughout the year; Barnes Wallis Academy is also collecting spectacles for the Lions.

Tattershall’s Holy Trinity Primary School got involved to highlight difficulties facing those with visual impairment or complete sight loss by taking part in a blindfolded lunch, to which Lion President Wally was invited.

The Leos are very much part of the Lions family and meet once a week at the Lions Den.
