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.
