Bridlington Lions club has recently brought some happiness into the lives of two local families.
Simon Malone, who is a qualified fitness instructor, is paralysed from the chest down. He is currently training his son who is a Yorkshire amateur boxing champion. Simon needed a special motorised adaption to his wheelchair to enable him to accompany his son on training runs. Simon has also been in discussion the Council to install special fitness equipment for use by the disabled in the new Leisure Centre. The photograph shows Simon with the current Lions club President Gordon Boyes and the club’s appeals coordinator Derek Boyland as they hand over the motorised fitment for Simon’s wheelchair.
Then Judith Walton wrote to the Lions saying that they wanted to ride out as a family but needed a special tandem bike so that her husband Cliff could also take along their teenage son Charlie who is disabled. After contacting a supplier in York, a special bike was prepared and delivered recently. The photo shows Cliff Walton with son Charlie in the front seat, again with Lions President Gordon Boyes and Lion Derek Boyland.
