Wimborne & Ferndown Lions Club President, Frank Fortey, presented a cheque for £2500 to the John Thornton Young Achievers Foundation. The money was raised from The Dorset Charity Horse & Dog Show and a recent Quiz Night at the Barrington Centre in Ferndown.
The Lions have been great supporters of the JTYAF since 2011. They have made a huge contribution to the JTYAF's continued investment in young people, donating over £6000, for which we are extremely grateful.
Pete Thornton commented “We really appreciate the fantastic support we receive from the Wimborne and Ferndown Lions Club. Together we are making a real difference to the lives of local young people.”
Fundraising Chair Lion Neil Godfrey said “We are delighted to continue to support this worthwhile local charity that helps so many local young people to realise their ambitions”.
