Attended by our clubs members and supporters, our 51st Charter Diner was held at the Dartford Masonic Club on Sunday 26th January 2020. Representing Lions Clubs International was 2nd Vice District Governor Steve Coe, he along with the Mayor of Dartford, Councillor Roger Perfitt complimented the club president Lion Milne Davidson and the entire team at Dartford Lions for their efforts in fundraising. They praised the clubs presence on social media and the website, these combined with the many fundraising events which the club hosts is what makes a successful club. They continued to praise the club on the amount of work we do raising money and then giving it out to worthy causes in Dartford.
