Edwinstowe and the Dukeries Lions

by | 24 November 2023 | Lions, Sherwood

Another Christmas is almost here and Edwinstowe and the Dukeries Lions wish you all a very happy Christmas, and thank all of you for the support that you have given them in 2023. This, in turn, is distributed to all manner of worthy causes.

The Club has had a very sad year losing a loved and vital long term member, and in his memory they continue. In December, Lions will again be help Santa visit as many areas in our community as, to both raise money and put smiles on the faces of children and adults alike.

The dates below are a good guide to where you’ll find them, but it could change at the last minute due to the number of helpers, weather etc:

  • Edwinstowe: Friday 1st to Wednesday 6th December
  • Bilsthorpe: Thursday 7th, Friday 8th Saturday 9th and Sunday 10th December
  • Ollerton: Monday 11th, Tuesday 12th, Wednesday 13th and Thursday 14th December
  • Tesco Ollerton Friday 15th, Saturday 16th and Sunday 17th December

There may be a few extra sessions after that to try and fill in some of the gaps. Please give the club some understanding as the volunteers work hard to cover as much ground as they can.

If you’d like to help, the Lions would also be grateful of any donations of Freddos or Haribos to hand out, and if you fancy a walk with Santa and their members with a collecting bucket even better. Contact Jon Yarwood on 07581 265531 or jon.c.yarwood@gmail.com for more information.
