Gentlemen- do you have a few voluntary hours to spare during December to help us in the role of Father Christmas? We are starting our Sleigh collections at various local shopping areas during December, with all donations being used to support our Charitable projects. If you are interested, please contact our Secretary on 0845- 8334359, or email:email@example.com"
It may seem rather early to be considering Christmas events, but at Swanwick Lions we have to start our planning many weeks in advance, to be sure of being able to continue to run our Christmas Sleigh.
Unfortunately, for several years we have been unable to take the sleigh round the local streets, as it takes at least 4 people to do this, and we simply do not have enough members who are able to walk round the streets for 2 hours at night. The children looked forward to the Lions Sleigh coming round, and everyone generously supported our collections. It is indeed a shame that we had to discontinue this service.
We have been able to continue with our sleigh collections at static venues throughout the neighbourhood, such as Lockswood Shopping Centre, Whitely Shopping Centre, Makro at Segensworth, etc.
However, this year, even this is in jeopordy, as we are critically short of gentlemen to help us with the role of Santa Claus. So, if you have even a couple of hours you can spare, please give us a call.
