Ordinary People – doing – Amazing things
17 December 2019
On behalf of Alton Lions Club (CIO) and all the people that Lions help at this time of year, this is to thank the people of Alton and Holybourne for their generous support to the Alton Lions Christmas appeal.
The response to the Christmas house-to-house collection reflects the generosity of people who donated, and this year reached £3674 and together with the £227 collected at Sainsbury’s Store made for an impressive overall result of £3901.
This generosity has enabled Alton Lions to provide vouchers and gifts to over 70 families and members of our community who would otherwise have less to enjoy over Christmas than those of us who are more fortunate. In addition, financial donations have been made to Marlfields, The Limes, the Women’s Refuge, Alton Community Association, Kings Arms & the Memory Café towards their own Christmas celebrations.
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 big-hearted support in 2019. On behalf of Alton Lions Club (CIO) I wish you all a happy Christmas and a healthy and prosperous 2020.
Paul Taroni, President, Alton Lions Club (CIO)
