The Books are closed & we made it by £1.09 - The Magic £10,000
What did we do, well thanks to the efforts of our accountant Lion Kevin, checking the "books" the Club has finally broken the £10000 barrier, on the last Lions Club year, even if it was by only £1.09p - but it all counts.
Thanks to everyone in Honiton and the local community who contributed.
