DG Leo Danz receives the Lions Eye Institute Award on behalf of Palmerston North Middle Districts Lions Club. Last year, this club initiated urgent action to facilitate saving the eyesight of a 10-year-old. Along with a grant from LMLCCT, the club raised funds to meet the costs of two eye operations, which proved successful and enabled the girl to gain full sight.
