Guildford lions club charter a new Omega Leos club
A new Omega Leo Club joins the pride.
The Guildford Lions Club is proud to have chartered a new Omega Leos Club, the Guildford Leo Club. The Club has been established at the University of Surrey, in Guildford. There are 21 founding members, not only from the UK but some as far away as China, Finland, Philippines, Romania, and Somalia.
The Leos were presented with their charter at a function on 15th May. Pete Dilloway, District Governor 105SE handed the Charter certificate to the founder president, Patricia Pelea and congratulated the Leos on being the first Omega Leos Club in the district for many years. He also thanked IPP Lion Deric Quaile for all the work he has put into forming the club.
The Guildford Leos have achieved much in their short existence. They have helped at the Guildford Lions Fireworks Fiesta; taken part in the Guildford Rough Sleep-out; taken part in fund raising competitions at the university; arranging a Blind Souls event where blind-folded students met and exchanged views and feelings with out being able to see each other - with quite illuminating results; and organised a litter pick to celebrate World Environment Day.
So successful has the new Leo Club been that they were awarded the prestigious "Best New Society" award by the University of Surrey Student Union at the annual Union Ball.
