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 and Holybourne for giving their generous support to the Alton Lions Christmas appeal.
This generosity has enabled Alton Lions to provide vouchers and gifts to those members of our community who would otherwise have less to enjoy over Christmas than those of us who are more fortunate.
The response to the Christmas house-to-house collection reflects the generosity of the people who donated and this year reached £3302 and together with the £279 collected at Sainsbury’s Store made for an impressive overall result of £3581.
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 2017. I wish you all a happy, healthy and prosperous New Year.
Michael Gwynne, President, The Lions Club of Alton
