Youth club members have welcomed the Hunslet Club’s brand new mascot.
Wylie the lion was unveiled at a meeting of the Hillidge Road facility’s youth club last week as part of the organisation’s 75th anniversary celebrations.
The mascot is named in memory of Dr John Wyllie, who founded Hunslet Boys Club in 1940.
The club initially provided activities for teenagers running messages between air raid shelters and first aid centres during the Second World War.
The club has remained a pillar of the community since then, opening to both boys and girls in the 1980s.
It now has more than 2,300 members.
