The Lions Club of Howick hosted a dinner with guest speakers Sarah and Peter Hillary – children of Mount Everest conqueror the late Sir Edmund Hillary – from the Himalayan Trust.

They commemorated the 70th anniversary of the Everest summit achievement.

Also present were members from Pakuranga-Panmure Lions and Bucklands Beach Lions clubs.

“After Sarah and Peter finished their extremely interesting, sometimes humorous talk, which included a video about the work of the Himalayan Trust, there were two presentations,” says Howick Lions’ Colin Salt.

A donation from the Howick Lions Club ($1000) followed by one from the Lion Leos ($200) from Sir Edmund Hillary Collegiate who are associated with the Howick Lions.

The three student Leos helped raise the money from their sausage sizzles and other fundraisers.
