    Shop Volunteers Christmas Lunch 2023

    December 5, 2023
    Jonny's Bar & Restaurante
    As a pre-Christmas thank you, the Lions treated their shop volunteers to a Christmas meal at the fabulous Jonny’s Bar and restaurant in La Cala. The tables were packed with volunteers from the six days of the week that the Lions Charity Shop in Calle Torremolinos is open. They were treated to an excellent meal served by Johnny’s chefs and staff. After the meal, Ricky Lavaza, got the party atmosphere going with his fine selection of music to dance to and very soon everyone was up and dancing the afternoon away. During the afternoon, a free raffle was organized and provided everyone present with a surprise gift. The Lions Charity shop was the brainchild of Ron Freeman who was the Lions President at the time and the first shop manager was current Lion Rosalyn Rowley. Today’s shop manager is Dave Greenwood and one of the first volunteers, Gillian Bale, is still a volunteer. Lions President Brenda Meredith presented all present with a gift of a 2024 diary and she also presented the Melvin Jones Fellowship Awards for long service to shop volunteers Merilyn Kay and Pilar Riveros ,who have been volunteers for over 5 years.
