Christmas Sleigh Activities

During Christmas we will be fundraising again this year with our Sleigh partners Bolton Lever Rotary Club.

Below is the the poster with the information of our Sleigh Runs.  


As well as the sleigh runs Bolton Lions will be collecting at Asda, Astley Bridge on the 16th December and at Morrisons, Chorley Old Rd, Bolton on the 23rd December.

Our pub collections will take place on Friday 15th December around pubs in the Chorley Old Road area and  Friday 22nd December in the Halliwell Road area with the addition of 2 or 3 establishments around Chorley New Road.

In August the club were grateful to be the recipients of a generous donation from Acumension a Manchester based company of Solicitors. 


PSA Screening

Funds faised by the concert given by the Smithills School bands and Eagley Brass Band on the 8th April 2017 will be used to provide Prostate Cancer Screening aimed at 50 year olds and upwards. Although this will be a free service, donations can be made which will mean even more men can be screened. The poster below gives details of the event.

Lions John Fairhurst and Ray Stafford met up with Sky Sports presenter Jeff Stelling at the Macron Stadium on Thursday the 8th June to promote the event by being photographed with him. He is raising money for Prostate Cancer Uk by walking 15 marathons in 15 days whilst visiting 40 of the country's top football grounds.

Jeff even manages to raise a smile stuck between us two!



Charities Canopy

As a result of a £1million refurbishment of the Newport Street area of Bolton, the Charities canopy used for fundraising is to be taken down and has been replaced by a Pod, about an eighth of the size of the Canopy, located near Bolton Market.  As at this moment the club have not used the new facility, but below is the link to an article published in the Bolton News on the 17th October which gives the reaction of charities that have used it. In the past few years we have been raising approximately £1500 per annum at the Canopy.

The following link takes you to a letter from a charity regarding their experience of the new Canopy.
