Today, we said a final goodbye to Calne Lion Graham Jamieson, who sadly passed away last month.
Graham epitomised what it is to be a Lion, serving the community, faithfully, not only as a Lion, but also a driver for Calne Link Service.
Graham loved helping out as an escort for the Gateway Club, and could be found selling tickets for the Duck Race or out collecting for our various street collections. He came into his own at Christmas, though, where he was an avid volunteer on our Santa float. Graham could always be relied upon to dance along to the christmas songs, waving at everyone who came out to see us and spreading Christmas cheer.
Although he will be much missed, the Club were proud to see him off with a guard of honour on his final journey this afternoon. ... See MoreSee Less
I am totally shocked! This is the first time I had heard that Graham had passed away. I only saw him a few months ago. He was a great human being and a great Lion. I extend my sincere condolences to all the members of Calne Lions Club and Graham's family.
So sad 😭 The lovely Graham was a great fellow Lion and neighbour. His kindheartedness will always be remembered. xx
Just seen this sad news, I had the pleasure in doing a a few Santa runs with Graham he will be deeply missed 🙁
