Donation from Wellesbourne & District Lions Club Christmas Appeal 2010

Wellesbourne and District Lions Club again very kindly selected Ettington CFR Scheme as one of its beneficiaries of the Santa Float collection. On Monday 13th December members of the Team therefore joined Santa on a suitably cold and icy evening for the door-to-door collection in Kineton.

Poor Santa was run off his feet with so many children to visit and with more photo calls to make than a rock star, but as his sack got lighter so the collecting tins got heavier thanks to the generosity of the Villagers. The proceeds from all the collections was as usual pooled together by the Lions and shared equally amongst the beneficiaries, cheques to the value of £180 being presented at a quiz night held in Kineton Village hall on 29th January.

This event was superbly organized and warmly hosted fun, even if the team couldn’t improve on its tenth place from 2010! Our very sincere thanks to Wellesbourne and District Lions for their continued support, and to the fabulous donations from the community without which such support couldn’t happen. We are truly grateful.
