Every December we help Santa in the Meon Valley area.

We take him around the villages to call on some of the local children in the run-up to Christmas.

We have built him a fine sleigh that we can tow behind our minibus, and we accompany him so he doesn't get lost...

Along the way, we collect charity donations while he hands out his lollies to the children. This year we raised 4,700 including one evening in Soberton Heath and Newtown when we collected a staggering 400.53. Thanks to all the Friends-of-Lions volunteers who helped us on those cold, damp evenings. Of course, the biggest thanks go to YOU the generous members of the public, for digging deep and boosting our funds.

This is our biggest annual fundraising activity and an essential part of our programme that enables us to provide charitable support throughout the Meon Valley. Thank you!

In November we will be publishing the programme for the following month but it can be subject to change depending on weather and availability of elves.... so keep an eye out for details on our Twitter feed and Facebook pages for last-minute changes to plan.
