Janette Bennett, President of the Torrevieja Costa Lions Club was delighted to install The Mayor of Torrevieja, Eduardo Dolon Sanchez, as an Honorary member of the Torrevieja Costa Lions Club at the May business meeting of the Club, held in Hotel Cabo Cervera on Thursday 8th May.
In what has been an extremely busy schedule for Janette with various fund raising events being planned and promoted and an even busier schedule for the Mayor, his colleagues and staff with the European Elections now officialy in full swing, both took some time out to induct Eduardo, presenting the Mayor with a certificate of Honorary membership and Lions lapel pin which Janette indicated he should wear with pride.
Janette thanked Eduardo for all the continuing support that the Club has had from Ayuntamiento Torrevieja for the past nine years and particularly made mention of Graham Knight, Rosario Martinez and Jean Paul Mulero who have all helped smooth the path for the Lions when negotiating the vagaries of Spanish administration and bureaucracy.
Eduardo responded by thanking Janette and the Club for all the excellent work undertaken tirelessly by them and intimated that he was indeed honoured to receive Honorary membership of such an excellent International Organisation
The Torrevieja Costa Lions Club is part of the Lions Clubs International (LCI) recognised globally as one of the finest Non Government Organisation(NGO) in the World.
The Club has a commitment to support LCI in many circumstances such as natural disasters, disease eradication like malaria, measles, and river blindness in third world countries, plus provision of aids to vision in countries where no such provision is available, however the main focus of your local Club is to help those most in need in the local community, the City of Torrevieja and surrounding villages.
Anyone who would like to become a member of the Torrevieja Costa Lions Club can take the first step by contacting Membership Director Philip by e mail on [email protected]

The Club is sponsored locally by many businesses who recognise The Lions as being very hard working in the Community, however no sponsorship can be enough to help the Lions continue with their excellent work, so any individuals or businesses who would like some information on sponsorship packages should in the first instance contact Sponsorship Director Jaimy by e mail on [email protected]
Next April the Lions Celebrate their 10th Charter Night and would be delighted to have new members to swell “The Pride” and new sponsors on board to celebrate continuing success.
