Christmas Float Fund Raising 2011

As you know some of the money raised from this event goes to taking some of our elderly community out for a days entertainment. This is a really special day for them, some of whom live alone and rarely get the chance to talk to others and have a bit of fun. We have already booked up this years day at Westenhanger Castle and arrangements are being made for transport, entertainment, food and all the other things that go to make a special day. 


 

Brabourne and Smeeth a local youth football team   

We have sponsored this team and they are now the proud owners of a new kit and very smart they look too. Good luck to them for the rest of the season.



Disneyland

A trip to Disneyland for a terminally ill little girl who lives in the area, we helped to pay for. Without help the family would have been unable to go and I am sure you will agree that this is a very special way for the funds you help us raise to be spent. We sincerely hope they had a great time and our thoughts are with them through this very difficult time




Worldwide

Some of our funds go to other Lions Clubs in parts of the world suffering from hardship from disasters.

This money goes direct to the local club who then oversees the project to make sure the money goes to where it is needed.

This is a fantastic way to ensure that all the money is used responsibly and it is reassuring to know that the people who look after the money are local men and women in the community, just the same as our little club here!

Some recent donations have been for Haiti and Australia.
