Mr Claxton also used the event as an opportunity to promote the Message in a Wallet scheme, which encourages people to record medication requirements, next of kin and other important details to keep in their wallet or purse, so that they can quickly receive the right treatment should they fall ill while out and about.

The initiative is being rolled out across the district by other participating lions clubs.
