Press release regarding the Chester Fireworks event due Nov 2018.

We at Chester Lions Club are very pleased that for one more year, a firework display will be taking place at Chester Racecourse. However, we are sad and disappointed that we did not get the financial support to enable us to put the event on one last time.

The Club is immensely proud of its achievement in creating the largest community and family event in The City, often with little or no financial support from The Council.

In organising a fireworks display in Chester for the last 54 years The Club saw it as providing a much needed service to the community. However, although on occasion the event has run at a “loss”, it has often raised funds enabling The Club is a charity here to support numerous local causes.

 Since July last year, thanks to all its fundraising activities, including the fireworks event, The Club has donated over £50,000 to local charities and organisations.

These included:- Hospice of the Good Shepherd; Cheshire Young Carers, Crossroads Care-for dementia care respite, Vision Support – telephone support line Countess of Chester Hospital,  Babygrow and Breast Scanner Appeals. Miles of Smiles, Save the Family Local junior football and netball teams, Local Schools Scouts, and Guides, Chester Swimming Club.

Next time you visit The Countess of Chester Hospital have a look at the blue Chester Lions Club notice board in the corridor near reception. It shows the support the Club has given to The Hospital over the years.
Obviously, without income from the fireworks event we will not be able to support those in need to the extent we have. However, The Club will continue to run other fundraising events and do what we can.

The Club always needs new members to continue the great work we do locally. As well as fundraising we also have fun and arrange club social events. If you are interested in what we do, or perhaps looking for a worthwhile way to fill some time after retirement contact Lion Mike Hill on 01244 300030.or search for us online. We would love to see you.

Although Chester Lions Club will be taking no part in this year’s event, we would like to thank the people of Chester for supporting us over the last 54 years. In so doing you have helped us to help so many within our community.
 We sincerely hope that once again you have a great and safe evening.
