Funds raised are already helping

I write on behalf of the President of the Lions Club of Keynsham, Lion Ken Hawker, to thank the people of Keynsham and Saltford for their generosity once again over the Christmas period.

The Christmas Appeal raised £3,600 and gave a lot of people and their children a great deal of pleasure and the money raised will be used wisely throughout the year and some has already been used to bring some Christmas cheer to number of disadvantaged families locally.

The club is also grateful to a number of local supermarkets, Morrison’s at Fishponds and Sainsbury’s at Emersons Green, two venues that continued to support Lions after the demise of the Lions Club of Kingswood.

In the town of course we were again supported strongly by the Cooperative store, which also helps us throughout the year with our charitable fundraising. Our thanks to them.

For those who missed us or who heard us but did not see us, I am sorry but we are limited in what we can do.

On behalf of my club I hope that we can continue to have a Father Christmas and sleigh, but without new members it becomes more difficult year on year.

So I close with grateful thanks and if anyone feels that they might wish to join and help to continue our work then please contact us on 0845 8339817.

Lion Alan Hale,

Lions Club of Keynsham
