A Lowestoft man joined forces with more than 300 other Lions Club members from across the British Isles at a special centenary celebration.
The 100th anniversary of Lions Clubs International was marked with a special gathering at Buckingham Palace, which was hosted by the organisation’s patron, Her Royal Highness The Countess of Wessex, on February 28.
David King, of the New Century Lions Club, said he was “very humbled” to be chosen to represent his Lions club, adding: “It was a magnificent experience and one that I will never forget.”
New Century Lions Club was chartered in 2001 and aims to help people within East Anglia through community service, highlighting health issues, environment issues and joining with other club’s fundraising events.
Lion Phil Nathan MBE, chairman of the centenary celebrations for Lions Clubs of the British Isles, said: “During our first century of service, Lions Clubs have touched millions of lives of people that needed us. As we enter our second century, the cry for help from those in need will most certainly become louder and we as volunteers are ready to show as Lions, We Care.”
