Crawley Lions received a famous visitor as they collected donations on World Sight Day in County Mall this morning (Thursday October 10).
Mysterious Girl singer Peter Andre was shopping in the Mall when he spotted the Lions’ stall and popped over for a chat.
Lion Gary Davies said: “He bought a raffle ticket and gave us a donation, which was great.
“He said what wonderful work the Lions did and was quite conversant with our work.
“He was very, very nice and we were thrilled to see him.”
The Lions will be in County Mall all afternoon and have tables full of goodies to give away as raffle prizes.
Mayor Cllr Bob Lanzer and Youth Mayor Tamsil Abbas volunteered to be blindfolded and walked around the Mall to get a feel of what it is like to have no sight.
The Crawley Lions are always on the lookout for new members of all ages.
