After a great deal of planning with the Sussex Community Dermatology Service, the event went ahead with consultants giving their expertise, advice and reassurance.

President Frances Burt said it was a success beyond anything the group imagined, as 146 people were seen with 29 of them being referred further.

The Lions were also helped by a young Friend of Lions who collected donations for sun cream.
