The Nixon Award
This award was given by Eric and Pat Nixon in recognition of all the work that Eric had performed over the years for Community Service.
This can be for the greatest variety of community service carried out by a club from one Convention to another or for a special innovation in response to a particular situation e.g. the refugees arriving from Ukraine, food parcels or a specific piece of technical equipment needed for someone with special needs.
The award will be judged by the GST Committee in conjunction with the DG team.
The award was made, but never presented to Romsey Lions in 2020. It was presented to Hook and Odiham Lions at Convention in 2022 for the variety of the work carried out including their Village Connect Trail.
In 2023 it was presented to Reading Lions Club who collects food and supports its local food banks, gives out food vouchers, helps its local citizens purchase household items and runs a Lions Den.
