ON Thursday, November 17 the La Cala Lions held their gala dinner at the Connoisseur restaurant in Riviera, attracting 40 people to enjoy ‘a taste of India.’

Tucking into delicious Indian fare while enjoying the sounds of live sitar music, the fundraising group celebrated their year’s achievements while catching up with fellow volunteers.
