At the last Lions dinner meeting at the Hickstead Hotel for the current year, as the Lions Clubs of the World year runs from 1st July to 30th June the following year, a surprise was in store for a member of the Burgess Hill District Lions.

The club has an annual award which is called the David Saunders Cup in recognition of the great service he gave to our local community and it goes to a Lion who has only been a member for the previous two years but has stood out in his commitment to the cause. This year the judges had a difficult job in deciding the winner for there was three in the running but the winner was Lion John Carter seen in the photo receiving the cup from Police Crime Commissioner Katy Bourne & Lion President Chris Muschamp.
