On behalf of The Lions Club of Alton and all the people that Lions help at this time of year, this is to thank the people of Alton, Holybourne and Four Marks for giving their generous support to the Alton Lions Christmas appeal.
This generosity has enabled Alton Lions to provide vouchers, gifts 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.
In spite of the current economic climate, the response to the Christmas house-to-house collection was an impressive £4372 and together with the £405 collected at Sainsburys Store made for a record year.
Alton Lions would like to take this opportunity to thank the management of Sainsburys, Alton for allowing the collection at the store.
The people of Alton and surrounding villages together with many local businesses have generously helped Alton Lions in many ways at the various events organised throughout the year.
Thank you to everyone for your wonderful support in 2013.
I wish you all a happy, healthy and prosperous New Year.
The Lions Club of Alton
