Founding member’s granddaughter becomes first woman inducted to Budleigh Lions Club
PUBLISHED: 17:00 19 August 2020
The granddaughter of one of the founding members of The Lions Club of Budleigh Salterton has become the first female to be inducted.
Natasha Gibbons’ grandfather Phil twice served as the president of Budleigh’s Lions Club and was proud to see his granddaughter become a member.
Natasha becomes the first female to be inducted - although two other women have been transferred into the club in the past.
President Richard Allen said he was delighted to be able to present the certificate of membership to Natasha, who is already actively involved in the club, joining in with regular litter picking and beach clean activities.
Usually the Lions Club holds regular fundraisers for good causes including Gala Week. However, due to coronavirus, many of these have had to be cancelled.
Budleigh’s Lions Club has set up a JustGiving page to collect donations.
