The Lions were asked by the St Georges Crypt charity for the homeless  if we were able to assist them at the Leeds Riverside festival by running a BBQ for them on either a Saturday or Sunday.   Due to a lack of response from others they later  asked  if we could cover both days which we willingly did .(23rd and 24th June)

winners 2018 Duck Race

Our 2018 Duck Race went well thanks to the generosity of the people of Rothwell and the surrounding areas. It's a hard day's work for the Lion members but it's all in a good cause and we go home at the end tired but satisfied with the results of our efforts. Next to come will be the Rothwell Carnival and then it's the  Wild Boar Challenge.
