LIONS CLUB OF HATFIELD appeal 2017
RE : ANNUAL V.I.P. CHRISTMAS PARTY FOR THE ELDERLY
Hope this finds you all well. I can’t believe that another year has flown by and we are nearly at the end of another year.
Our Lions Club (Hatfield) will be hosting our annual VIP Christmas party for the elderly in Hatfield and the surrounding areas. We usually host between 120 and 150 people with lunch, delicious afternoon tea, music, bingo and raffle ( no charge for this, they are all given tickets on arrival for a “lucky draw”). Then they all get a gift (usually toiletries, pen, writing pad and envelopes which they can’t afford, chips, sweets, chocolate and biscuits) from Father Christmas to take home.
To host our party usually costs in the region of US$1000 to US$2000 including donations we receive “in kind” and this covers all the food, gifts, raffle and bingo prizes.
Whilst I really appreciate the difficult times we are experiencing at the moment, I would like to send out an appeal to you all for donations, either in cash or kind, no matter how big or small, to assist us in hosting this party. Every little bit helps and it all goes to our “old folks”.
For most of them it is the highlight of their year as they do not have much in the way of Christmas as their families are no longer with them and they have very little or none financially.
The party will take place at Highlands Presbyterian Church Hall on 9th December.
