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 and Holybourne for once again giving their generous support.
In spite of the current difficult economic climate, the response to the Christmas house-to-house collection and at Sainsburys Store was a record with more than £3500 being donated.
I would like to take this opportunity to thank the management of Sainsburys for allowing Alton Lions to collect at their store. I would also like to thank our new and regular customers who visited our stalls at the Tuesday Markets, the Craft Market and the Yuletide Festival.
Once again Alton Lions were able to provide vouchers, gifts, hampers and turkeys to those who would otherwise have less to enjoy over Christmas than those 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
