WISBECH Lions has come to the aid of a local school where garden tools had been stolen and fences damaged.
“We heard of their plight and stepped into help,” said Lions president Avis Gilliatt.
At a school assembly at Leverington Primary Academy, Mrs Gilliatt handed over new tools and gardening equipment to headmistress Rosie Simmonds and all the pupils.
After the Assembly the Lions were shown the new gardening area and many pupils joined in.
Lions Club mascot Les the Lion was mobbed by eager children all keen to shake his hand.
“He was by far the star attraction,” said Mrs Gilliatt.
