AWARD FOR LION NICK SEAGER


At a short ceremony at Devizes Lions' July meeting, Past President Jerry King awarded a much coveted Melvin Jones Fellowship award to Lion Nick Seager for his sterling effort in raising a total of £6,400 for the Club's charity funds by cycling from Lands’ End to John O’Groats - and all through his own effort.

The Melvin Jones Fellowship (MJF) Award is named after our founder and is the highest recognition from the Lions Clubs International Foundation given to members who have rendered outstanding community services.

75 year old Devizes Lion Nick Seager said:

"I am cycling from Land’s End to John O’Groats because I'm nuts and I want to!  

At 75 perhaps I should be thinking about taking it easy.  Right? 

Errr....No! 

I'm an active member of Devizes Lions, a vibrant local charity that raises funds to help support both needy individuals and  local charities.  

Fund raising for charities has been a massive challenge for over a year now.  I feel that I can help by raising money through this challenge.

Please donate whatever you can. 100% of the money
raised (including gift aid) will be used to support local charities.  I shall personally cover all my ride expenses.

Originally planned for May 2020 I'm now scheduled for a June 2nd start from Land’s End arriving in John O’Groats on June 25th.  I will mostly be cycling on my own and be self-supporting because of the times in which we’re living.  I'm OK for that challenge but your charitable contributions would definitely give me a boost!

Here's the planned route - 998 miles and 52,572 feet of climbing. That's kill or cure isn't it?!"
