Belvoir Cricket & Countryside Trust

Darren Bicknell recently visited Lions and talked about teaching table tennis cricket to Special Needs children and normal cricket skills to other school children in our area. The BCCT are based at Belvoir Castle and in a season put approximately 3,000 children through their programme of cricket in the morning, followed by a meeting the Castle fishermen, gamekeeper and other staff members during the afternoon sessions to learn about countryside pursuits. Grantham Lion John Dickinson presented Darren with a cheque for £150 to help continue this good work.

Grantham Lions now have a new way to donate to local causes. Using the good offices of 'My donate' (a free service supported by BT), donors can donate whenever they feel the urge.

If any of you missed the Santa sleigh during December and would like to throw a little something in our 'virtual bucket' we would be delighted to hear from you!

Thank you....

Santa’s tour continues…

Well Grantham….

You have been magnificent so far.  Santa has been at Asda for two Saturday afternoons and then out for seven nights pounding the streets and greeting so many people, helping Grantham Lions with our important fund raising, which is spent on local people and causes.

We still have three nights to go:-

Wednesday 20th – we tour the Balmoral Drive area
Thursday 21st – saying ‘hello’ to the folks of Dysart Road, finishing on
Friday 22nd – travelling around the Stephenson Avenue area

If any of you have photos of the tour, please send them to us as Santa would love to see them!  You can reach us at granthamlionsuk@gmail.com.  We look forward to hearing from you…

 

 

The Santa run continues…

Let’s hope you’ve been good Grantham…

Santa is back on his sleigh tonight working round the Princess Drive/Almond Grove area of the town from 6:30pm.  You can’t miss him – flashing lights, loud music and a very impressive beard!

See you soon…

It begins tonight!

After much planning and negotiating with the Elves (and Mrs Claus) Santa hits the streets of Grantham tonight for his much anticipated support for Grantham Lions.

We are kicking off tonight in the Alma Park area from around 6.30pm.  Santa is hoping to see as many people as possible this year, mostly to show off his new sleigh!

See you all soon…IMG_2100

Come and say “Ho-ho-hi”!
