Well done Lion Keith!

With a little bit of help from our own Teesdale and Morpeth Lions Clubs on the way, Kettering Lion Keith Ogley has finally reached John O’Groats having walked the 874 miles from Lands End.

By way of a reminder, 72 year old Lion Keith’s wife Joan spent the last couple of weeks of her life in Cransley Hospice where she was able to live in comfort and dignity. Joan, Keith, his daughters and grand-daughter were treated, throughout this terrible time, with care and compassion. It is important to Keith that this service continues to be provided to his local community.

This new challenge began on 13th May when Keith left Lands End and ended last weekend when he arrived at his destination to be met by his daughters and grandchildren. En-route  Lion Keith celebrated his 72nd birthday with Teesdale Lions. To date he has raised over £3,000 and it’s not too late to top up his fund-raising efforts. If you are as inspired by Keith’s ambition and fortitude as his many Facebook followers are and would like to make a donation via Just-Giving please follow this link.
