As President of Aberystwyth Lions Club, I would like use the Cambrian News to convey both mine and Lions club members’ sincere thanks to all those businesspeople and others who attended at the Marine Hotel on Wednesday, 7 December, where the club held the annual business persons’ lunch.
After a first-class Christmas lunch, guests were entertained by the well-known international rugby union referee, Derek Bevan MBE, who kept his audience amused with experiences of the various rugby matches and individual characters he had come across during his years of officiating. Afterwards a raffle and auction was held, which raised just over £4,000.
On behalf of Aberystwyth Lions Club, I wish to thank all those kind people who attended the event, with special thanks to those who gave items for the auction and those who purchased items, and with a special thank you to our auctioneer Iestyn Leyshon.
All the money raised will go towards individuals in need and other charity organisations over the forthcoming year.
Meirion Lewis, president of Aberystwyth Lions Club.
