Easter Egg Raffle
When out and about in the area, keep an eye on many of the Pubs and Cafes who are taking part in our annual Easter Egg raffle. You will see giant Easter eggs on display and you can purchase a tickets for only £1 and if you are lucky enough, the egg could be yours when the proprietor/licensee carries out the draw. 50% of the profits from the establishments draw will be donated to the nominated charity with the Lions retaining the remainder. Helping two causes for only a £1 donation. Can't be bad, can it.
Malt at the Movies
Our latest venture exploring the wonderful world of Malt Whisky took place at the Carlton Club and was quite different from the normal whisky tasting. Using the Ken Loach film, "The Angels' Share", the audience followed the plot which saw four likeable rogues play out the final scam which would lead to untold riches enabling them to break away from their preordained destiny of a life of crime and violence. See how it went.
Spring Artisan Food Festival
The first of our six fairs planned for the United Reformed church hall in Newport Pagnell saw 18 specialist food/drink businesses bring their products to the attention of the local residents. Find out how it went by having a look at our Newport Pagnell Events page.
How did our trip to Cuba fare?
The club helped two local girls who are about to take part in a major fundraising intitiative to raise funds for 3 womens' cancer charities when they will be cycling across Cuba. The club supported them by underwriting some costs associated with an evening of Cuban food and entertainment at the Carlton Club which has seen them generate over £1500 towards their cause. A far more effective way of helping them than simply giving a donation. Find out more about their forthcoming endurance test via our link.
