Lions President Ryan Hope and Kevin the Lion were out and about mingling with volunteers and supporters of M.V. Freedom at the Pavilion Theatre in Weymouth recently, presenting them with a bumper cheque for £500 together with a Lions certificate of appreciation. Ryan Hope said,


“It’s a pleasure to donate this cheque and this certificate to you all today, not just for the help and assistance you provide for us on our Christmas Day swim, but for all the valuable hard work that you do throughout the year as well”.


M.V. Freedom provides Weymouth & Portland Lions Club with much needed assistance every Christmas Day on the water in the harbour as part of the ever-popular Lions Christmas Day harbour swim. The 2019 swim was again a very successful event, with over 480 swimmers taking part. Proceeds from the swim will be distributed by Weymouth & Portland Lions Club to individuals and groups throughout the year.
