Alessandra and her family joined Burnley members at the Lions’ annual convention in Kendal in March to receive a trophy, a cheque and a shield for her school, St John the Baptist RC Primary.

The shield was presented to St John’s by Lion Jackie Seed, who organised the Burnley end of the competition.

Jackie said that the standard of artwork was very high and it had been difficult to choose the winner.
