Christmas Presents

Christmas is such a special time of the year for children. Hayling Lions aim to make sure that no child on Hayling wakes up on Christmas morning without presents on the end of their bed. There are some families who struggle so with names being passed to us we purchase and deliver Santa Sacks. There were 68 sacks filled with presents last year and I think the lions have as much fun purchasing and wrapping the presents as the children do when they open them.

Bowling

All work and no play makes Jack a dull boy so we make sure as Lions we also have fun nights out. A couple of our members are seen here enjoying a game of ten pin bowling

Young Citizens Cup

We support the Young Citizenship Cup for pupils at the Mengham Junior School. A pupil from the Lower School and one from the Upper School are chosen not for their academic achievements but for the help they give others above and beyond what is expected

Visitors from Cherbobyl

Each year 12 youngsters travel from Chenobyl for a visit this country. These youngsters suffer from health problems following the explosion at a radiation plant many years ago. Whist they are here they receive medical and dental teatment as well as fun outings. Hayling Lions each year purchase much needed clothes for these young people
