Lions Club looking for new members

A community volunteer group, which raises money for locally-based good causes, is looking to recruit new members to its ranks.

Alnwick Lions Club is holding an open evening on Monday in the town’s RAFA Club, on Lisburn Street, from 7.30pm, in a bid to attract more members.

The town organisation currently has 26 people on its books but wants to expand.

Member Dave Knowles said: “The theme of the evening is very much Alnwick Lions Club needs you.

“There will be a few members there on the night and hopefully people will come along and find out more about what we do.

“We are a bunch of like-minded people who get together and help people as best we can and give something back to the community.

“We want to increase our membership and are looking for some fresh blood who may have fresh ideas.”
