SANTA’S CHRISTMAS TOUR OF CORSHAM AND CHIPPENHAM 2016

 

The Chippenham Lions had another successful fund raising champaign this Christmas with their Carol Float and other activities. Throughout December the club visited 17 local catchments areas, collected at two superstores and sold mulled wine at the Corsham and Chippenham switch-ons.  Through these initiatives we were able to raise a total in excess of £13,800 - a record for us, despite some wet and cold evenings. 

All in all, a very rewarding experience not just for raising these funds, but also to see the kiddies lined up to greet Santa and that the old magic still works. The club would like to thank the people of Corsham and Chippenham for their generosity and, as in previous years, the Lions are very grateful to the principal of Lackham College for the loan of the tractor and trailer.

As well as helping individuals in need, these funds will go to a number of causes; local, national and international and a visit to our 'Community Service' page will give you a good idea of where the funds went last year.

Sub-Committee leader Jim Dutch talked about the campaign in the Gazette and Herald  Here
