For a full house, it was a boxed Chicken Dinner complete with vegetables The prize for the final Flyer game was a boxed LAMB dinner complete with all vegetables The evening made a profit of 352 for our charities. A wonderful effort Aimee !

OTHER EASTER FUNDRAISING

In the weeks leading up to Easter 2019, Large especially decorated Thornton's Easter eggs were placed in several of Pubs in our area. Numbered squares were sold for  1 a square. With the winners being drawn on Easter Sunday, after the cost of the eggs were deducted, the profit for our charities was 922. This was repeated at Easter 2020. But Covid-19 put the pubs into lockdown before the draw. However thanks to the landlords, individual generosity and an auction 165 was raised for Bounce Charity and after costs, just over 200 went to the charity account.


  

On Saturday October 5th 2019, a Race Night was held at the Exeter Golf and Country Club.

75 people enjoyed a very nice 2 course meal, which was followed by the filmed Horse Racing. A DVD was randomly selected and after a report on each of the 8 horses in a race, people went to the Tote table where 4 Lion members sold tickets for each of the runners who were numbered from 1-8. Lion Neil Moxey, our MC then auctioned each horse, with the buyer of the winning horse receiving 50% of the total raised by that races auction. There were 8 races in all.

We had representatives from The Exeter Multiple Sclerosis society. Acorns  & Squirrels Riding School for disabled children. We were also raising money for Balloons charity and the CLIC Sergeant charity. Following the evening. Each of the four Charities received 500
