Members present the charity with a cheque for £428 after holding a series of fundraising events

Seaton Young Leaders, Victoria and Isabella Synek Herd, presented a cheque for £428.20 to Pauline Leach, Children’s Hospice South West (CHSW), at Seaton and District Lions Club April meeting.

The Young Leaders raised the money by holding tabletop sales, tuck shop, selling Christmas cards and organising an Easter Egg Tombola. Seaton’s Young Leaders are sponsored by Seaton and District Lions Club, independently raising money as Young Leaders in Service to donate to good causes.

Seaton’s Young Leaders chose to donate to CHSW because the it provides hospice care for children with life-limiting conditions who are not expected to survive into adulthood.

The three hospices in the south west, provide respite care and support for those children and their families and 2016 is an exciting year for the charity, which celebrates 25 years since its founding in 1991.
