BUDLEIGH Salterton Lions Club has thanked everyone who supported its recent fundraising activities in aid of the Good Shepherd Hospital, in Swaziland.

The Lions Club has for several years sent monthly payments to the hospital to buy essential equipment.

The latest events raised �1,303 for the hospital which cares for orphans and those suffering from HIV and Aids.

Lion Geoff Paver said: "This will enable us to continue to send them �80 per month and a start to raise enough to buy the next piece of equipment that the surgeon desperately needs - a burr hole set."
