Lakeside Village has been presented with an award for it’s commitment to the local community and charity work.
The award for humanitarian needs of the community, which is internationally recognised, was presented by the Lions Club International, for the work carried out by Lakeside Village and the Thorne Rural Lions Club over the last six years.
Raising over £18,085.94 for many local charities and good causes, they have organized and hosted charity fundraising events, collection tins, tombolas and raffles.
Lions Club International president, Auriol Henton, visited the management team at Lakeside Village recently to present the award, along with a representative of Thorne Rural Lion’s Club.
Lion’s secretary, Barry Gosforth, said: “We are extremely grateful to Lakeside Village and their customers for providing us with a huge amount of support over the years. We hope to continue to work closely with them in the future and carry on the good work in the local area.”
Cheryl Sadler, Lakeside Village centre manager, said: “Lakeside Village has really enjoyed working with the Thorne Rural Lions over the last six years and we are very grateful to our customers who have helped raise the enormous amounts of money over the years.”
