Santa took his sleigh to London Road Garage recently for its annual service. Lions Bruce and Tony are seen carrying out essential maintenance to make sure that it is ready for Santa’s annual tour of the area in December.
We had another successful Christmas float project last year collecting over £3500 on its door-to-door collections in Retford and the surrounding villages. Santa would be unable to operate his annual programme of visits to see children in their home areas without the support of local youth groups. These groups are rewarded with a share of the proceeds to assist them in funding the activities they provide for young people.
Lions members and other volunteer helpers raised a further £1000 in Carolgate.
We are grateful to everyone who supported the Christmas Float project, especially Retford Honda for once again kindly providing the towing vehicle and to PRS for Music for issuing us with a licence to play Christmas music from the float.
PRS licences the use of copyright music across the UK, giving businesses and organisations the legal permission they need to play the music they want. These licences ensure that music publishers, songwriters and composers are fairly rewarded with royalties so they can keep making music - and mean that we’re able to support music at events like this.
