Leo Plumley Award

In 2023 it was awarded to Henley on Thames Lions Club who organised a river trip for Dementia patients
Lion Leo Plumley was a highly regarded President of Sherborne Lions and was the District officer for sight and was also involved in Diabetes Awareness in the late eighties/early nineties. Leo was very dedicated and inspired Lions with his enthusiasm. He received a Lions Clubs International award for his work.
Leo was not a well man but he still continued his work without complaint until he sadly passed to higher services 20 years or so ago.
This award is a fitting memory to Leo's dedication to Lions and especially his dedication to sight projects.
