Edwinstowe and The Dukeries Lions

Edwinstowe and The Dukeries Lions Club is delighted with the support of its annual Easter Hamper Raffles. Seventeen hampers have been raffled and all the winners have received their prizes.

The Lions would like to thank the staff and customers of the following establishments for their help with this vital fundraising:

  • Red Lion, Wellow
  • Copper Beech, Bilsthorpe
  • Ollerton House, Ollerton
  • Furniture Project, Ollerton
  • South Forest, Edwinstowe
  • Edwinstowe House, Edwinstowe
  • Forest Lodge, Edwinstowe
  • Dukeries Lodge, Edwinstowe
  • Launays, Edwinstowe

Recently, they presented cheques to Councillor and Ollerton Mayor Lee Robert Brazier and to Linda Broom of the Edwinstowe Rainbows and Brownies. Lee recently did a ‘sleepout’ to raise money for the homeless and Linda wanted funds to take the children to a Christmas panto.

Edwinstowe and the Dukeries Lions thing it’s great to help people – they’re aim is to raise money and give it away to worthy causes.

Is this something that interests you? The Lions have lots of fun doing this. They have one business meeting per month and also a social meeting each month.

They have a Fashion Show date in the diary – Tuesday 25th June at Bilsthorpe Miners Welfare – and members are all going on a day trip to the coast for some fresh air, food and drink.
