Eastbourne Lions Club
The Eastbourne Lions Club Christmas activities got off to an early start in mid-November as we were fortunate enough to have been selected as one of the 48 charities to raise money at the Win a Car in The Beacon centre.
During December we collected in the town centre and at Aldi, Morrison’s, Sainsbury’s and Langney Shopping Centre as our Santa Sleigh visited as many streets as possible sometimes thwarted by the wet conditions.
I would like to thank all those who gave us permission to collect on their premises, the Sea Cadets for their support and the members of the public who gave so generously. More than £4,500 was raised in total and this will allow us to continue with our work helping individuals and supporting local projects in the community.
