The citation for 2011-2012 was as follows: Collecting spectacles for Spectrek is carried out by many Lions but my attention was drawn to one particular Lion this year. 2012 is the 30th year that Petersfield Club has organised the spectacles collections on what is known as Spectrek Day. On a Sunday in April many Clubs take their collections to various meeting points where they are collected by Lions from Petersfield Club. The member in question has been involved every year for those 30 years in collecting spectacles for his Club. Not only that but the member is now 90 years old and has been a Lion for 41 years
