SEATON: Successful Christmas for Lions
Friday, 17 January 2014
SEATON and District Lions had a very busy and successful Christmas period.
The month began with the Lions hosting a senior citizens’ lunch at Colyford Memorial Hall on December 8th, where more than 100 guests enjoyed a three course turkey dinner. The afternoon was topped off by the singing of a selection of Christmas carols.
On December 14th the Lions hosted a table top sale at Seaton Town Hall, which was followed by a cabaret evening. Entertainment was provided by vocalist Szara King and comedian Paul Zee.
The table top sale raised £163, whilst the cabaret put £1,127 into the Lions’ coffers.
The club spent 13 nights throughout December touring the area with their ‘Santa float’ collecting funds for worthy causes.
The Lions also spent two days collecting at local supermarkets – one at Tesco and one at the Co-op – with a total of £3,958 being raised.
This is one of the largest figures the Seaton Lions has ever collected, and the group would like to thank everyone who gave so generously. Some of the money raised will go towards the new day hospice being built in Honiton.
