Fund Raising  We enjoyed a very successful December following on from our November activities.  We took part in both the Odiham Extravaganza and the Hartley Wintney Christmas Market and sold out of tickets on both occasions.  We thank InOdiham and Hartley Wintney Parish Council for allowing us to take part in these events.   In both instances the hampers were won by local people.  A new venture was attending the St John’s Mini Christmas Cracker in Hook where we held a raffle and we are very grateful for being given permission to be there.

We took Father Christmas out and about on four occasions.  Unfortunately one night was very wet and windy and we decided it was not safe to venture out.  This should have been the RAF Odiham round and we decided to alter our schedule and visit another night.  We were really welcomed on the estate and were so pleased that we made the decision to vsit.  Our apologies to Sr Mary’s Estate for cancelling our round but we could not fit it in.

Finally on the last four days before Christmas including Christmas Eve we took Santa to Tescos and collected money and gave out lollipops to the children.  Our thanks to Tescos for once more allowing us to collect there.

We thank everyone for their generous contributions over the Christmas period which will help us to help others in the local community who are less fortunate than ourselves.

Our Christmas Feast

We took a break from Fund Raising to enjoy a Christmas meal at the Crooked Billet which is also the venue for our annual Duck Race.

Whilst we spend considerable time raising money our main purpose is to help others and our motto is “We Serve”.  However, it is not always easy to find those in our communities who need a little help.  Please let us know if you know anyone who is down on their luck and could do with a little help from us by contacting the website or phoning the Lion phone.  Even better, if you would like to know more about helping us, please contact the website below.  You will always be welcome to come along to one of our meetings which are held on the third Monday of each month at 7:00pm at The Raven Hotel in Hook.

Our next ventures will be our Easter Egg Raffle and then our Prostate Cancer Screening for men between the ages of 45 and 70.  Plans are well in hand for this event which will take place on May 20th  at the Odiham Cottage Hospital.
