On behalf of The Lions Club of Alton and all the people we help at this time of year, I am writing to thank the people of Alton, Holybourne and for the first time this year, Four Marks for giving their generous support to our appeal.
In spite of the current severe economic climate, the response to the Christmas house-to-house collection was £3417, and at Sainsburys Store of £321, providing a new record total of £3738.
I would like to take this opportunity to thank the management of Sainsburys, Alton for allowing Alton Lions to collect at their store. I would also like to thank our new and regular customers who have supported our stalls at the Tuesday Markets, the monthly Craft Markets and the Yuletide Festival.
Your generosity has once again made it possible for Alton Lions to provide vouchers, gifts, hampers and turkeys to those members of our community who would otherwise have less to enjoy over Christmas than those of us who are more fortunate.
Thank you to everyone for your support and a happy, healthy and prosperous New Year to all.
The Lions Club of Alton
