Newquay Towan Blystra Lions are inviting young people in the age range 14 – 21 to come along to Newquay Tretherras Academy next Tuesday evening and learn more about their new Leos club which is being established to cover the Newquay and District area.
Towan Blystra Lions are part of the worldwide network of Lions Clubs which provide service and support to local communities and beyond through fund raising and help to worthwhile groups and causes. The Leos are a branch of the club which encourages young people to get involved by developing their own projects and initiatives under the umbrella of the Lions.
“It is a fantastic opportunity for young people to develop their portfolios by becoming involved in charitable voluntary work” said Jodie Ward, the Lions Youth Officer. “Employers and universities are normally looking to see what level of social responsibility has been demonstrated by prospective employees and students. Leos is a great way to be able to show this in a well recognised and accepted international organisation.”
“There are also opportunities to gain awards through the Young Leaders in Service programme and have some fun in the process” Jodie continued.
Sarah Morcom, who is another of the Towan Blystra Lions helping to develop the Leos, said: “Ours is a young and vibrant club who are very keen to see this develop as a long-term initiative providing genuine opportunities for young people in our community. It’s totally free to join as the club with the assistance of Newquay Town Council have supported the scheme.”
Those interested along with parents and friends are invited to come along to Tretherras on Tuesday at 6.30 where Lions will be available to explain details of the Leos and discuss what opportunities exist.
