The youth group has donated books worth more than £300 to children.

Members, who are aged 12 to 14, gave the books to the Childville Centre’s after school club for children at Becontree Primary School in Dagenham.

Nicky Coaker, managing director of Childville, said: “I am absolutely surprised and delighted, and I commend the club members for their excellent selection of books for all ages which will be well used by all our children.”

It was the group’s sixth book donation.

The 25 Leos raise money for a variety of causes and have won several awards for their efforts.

They are affiliated to the Lions Club, an international organisation raising money for charities and local causes.
