During 2018, we built on our successes from 2017, attending those functions that we have attended annually for many years, and of course holding both our annual Swimarathon – our beneficiary for 2018 was Time 4 Children who were presented with a cheque for £15000 – and our Father Christmas Collection in December, which enabled Lions to purchase Sainsburys vouchers for 134 children.
Additionally, we also managed to distribute much needed funds to 47 different groups, charities and organisations totaling just under £7,000, all of which again had to be raised in order to distribute to others.
Some of the organisations we raised money for in 2018 included but were not limited to:
- The Aiden Christmas Dinner project
- Alzheimer’s Society
- British Heart Foundation
- Crisis UK
- Seahorses Swimming Club
- St Peter & St James Hospice
- Time 4 Children
As ever, we’d like to thank you to everybody who attended our events or provided donation &/or support. We simply couldn’t have achieved so much without you.
