It was the Camborne Redruth Lion’s first social get together for over a year when they held their belated handover lunch at Tehidy Golf Club.

Lion President David Broadhurst 2020/2021 was re-elected and after handing over to himself had much pleasure in presenting Melvin Jones Fellow awards to Lion Secretary Steve Young and Pat Bray.

Lion Steve Young has been a Lion Member for 20 years and in addition to being a very able Secretary is also the Club’s social chairman. In recent years Steve has successfully and efficiently run the charity Darts marathons in association with the Camborne and Redruth Ladies Darts League.

During the last 18 months of the Covid epidemic Pat crafted on her sewing machine face masks that were sold from the local Health shop. She put together some 2700 masks and raised £3000 for the Lion’s Charity Account.

To date, the recipients of her efforts, are Little Harbour, a Cornish Children’s Hospice and St Julius Hospice each received £1000 and a further £95 went to the Poppy Appeal
