                                   Easter fundraising 2019

  In the weeks leading up to Easter, several of our Lions took Easter eggs that we had bought,into lots of Pubs in our area.They had sheets with numbers 1-100 and sold them for 1 a square.The winners were drawn out on Easter Sunday, and the proceeds for our charities were 922,which was an excellent amount.


  

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

75 people enjoyed a very nice 2 course meal first,then it was full on to the Horse Racing DVD's. A DVD was randomly selected and after a report on each of 8 horses in that race,by the film commentator,people went to the Tote table where 4 Lion members were selling tickets to bet on numbers 1-8.Lion Neil Moxey was our MC and he then got buyers for each individual horse by getting people to make offers on each horse to get highest amount possible (8 races in all).We made a profit of 850

We had representatives from Multiple Sclerosis society,and Acorns  & Squirrels Riding School for disabled children present and we were also raising money for Balloons charity and CLIC charity.

Here is a photo of the people from Riding for the Disabled.
