A DINNER held by Keighley Lions Club rewarded long-serving members and dished out money to a trio of good causes.

The event was held at Oakwood Hall Hotel, in Bingley.

Among those who attended were Lions club members from Todmorden, Bradford and Harrogate, as well as senior representatives from the Rotary and Soroptimists organisations.

Desmond Jackson was presented with a certificate for 50 years service to the Lions.

He is already a holder of the Melvin Jones Fellowship award, which is presented to those members who have made an outstanding contribution to the club's work.

Vice president of Keighley Lions Hazel Jiggins received a 10-year service chevron during the same charter dinner.

The three good causes to receive donations from the Lions at the night included Keighley District Scout Group.

District commissioner Jeanette Young and assistant district commissioner Derek Wild received a cheque for £1,000 on behalf of their organisation.

Other donations included a cheque for £500 to Keighley-based Mama na Mtoto, which helps pregnant mothers and their babies in Kenya and £200 to the district governor's ladies appeal, which is supporting Yorkshire Cancer Research.
