In the past two months, Horsham Lions have donated £5,000 in grants to help young people and Youth Organisations in the Horsham Community to support their aims and objectives.
A sum of £800 raised at our Quiz Night, and donated to Kent Surrey and Sussex Air Ambulance and The Nepal Earthquake Appeal and most recently, started the promotion of our Swimarathon 2016, which is in aid of two local charities, namely the Butterfly Project and The Hop Skip and Jump Centre.
Christmas is getting ever closer and being a ‘season of goodwill’, Horsham Lions are setting out to help the elderly, and needy families within our Horsham Community by providing, with the support of our Community Partners, Christmas food parcels and presents for children within those families.
Last year we provided 74 food parcels and presents for 100 children. We would like to help more people this Christmas but we need to raise the money to do this through various fundraising activities throughout December.
We will be collecting at the following locations between December 4 and 24:
Sainsbury’s on Friday 4 & Saturday 5 December between 9am and 5pm.
Newbridge Nurseries on Friday December 11 between 9am and 5pm.
Hilliers Garden Centre on Saturday December 12 between 9am and 5pm.
