LION PRESIDENT THANKS LOCAL RESIDENTS
Public generosity makes annual appeal “A huge Success”
The annual Christmas Appeal by Bexhill Lions was a great success said Lion President Paul Fleming.
“The people of Bexhill have once again demonstrated their caring and generosity in donating money to our Christmas Appeal for which we offer a really big “thank you”.
At the weekends in December, Members and Friends of Bexhill Lions were out with their barrel organs and sleigh in Western Rd. Devonshire Road and Little Common as well as Tesco and Sainsbury’s. In the evenings, Santa and his helpers with their illuminated sleigh and Christmas music toured residential areas of Bexhill.
Lion President Paul added ” These collections raised over £5,600.00 an amazing amount, which was significantly higher than last year. We are tremendously grateful to the residents of Bexhill for their generosity and continued support of Bexhill Lions Club “.
In addition to these activities, the Club placed Christmas cakes in a range of retail outlets, cafes, restaurants and hairdressers in town as Lucky Draw prizes.
Christmas Appeals organiser, Brian Comber said ” A tremendous result, in addition to which is the money raised through individual sponsorship by the Santa Dash entrants, which we believe is approximately £2,500.”
Brian Comber went on to say ” Bexhill Lions Club is very grateful to RDC, Tesco and Sainsbury’s for their continued support. I would particularly like to thank Members and Friends of Bexhill Lions Club for their hard work, commitment and flexibility, which helped make this appeal such a success.”
” All the money raised and the profits from the various activities will be used to support our activities during the coming year. We will continue to offer support to community and youth groups as well as to charities and individuals in need. On behalf of the Members of Bexhill Lions Club I wish you all a safe and happy 2016.”
