After raising £1,000 for New Hope Trust last Christmas, Watford Lions Club have thanked Abbots Langley residents and the events sponsor for their help.
The Club, who are committed to serve the local community including charities, senior citizens etc, raised the amount during their Father Christmas visits.
A statement released by the club thanked local residents which meant they could help the charity who work tirelessly to provide hot food and clean sleeping bags for the homeless.
It read: “Watford Lions would like to thank the residents of Abbots Langley and those near the Studios for supporting Father Christmas’ visits. Your generous donations meant we could make donations to help New Hope Trust who work hard to provide hot food and clean, dry sleeping bags for the homeless, and also Watford Community Housing Trust to whom we gave Asda vouchers to help families with their shopping near to Christmas.
“Finally, but most importantly, Watford Lions would like to thank our sponsors, without who none of the village events would be able to take place-Warner Bros.Leavesden Studios; MK Ginder & Sons, Abbots Langley Parish Council.
“People have asked if Father Christmas can visit other roads – yes he can! But only if we have more volunteers! Sign up now as he is planning his visits.”
Now the club are busy organising the annual carnival, which is taking place on Saturday, June 13, and are looking for people who can help on the day.
Street marshals, static marshals are just a number of roles that you can get involved in.
