Collection goes with a Bang

Morpeth Lions get ready to collect

Every year Morpeth Rugby Club holds its annual Fireworks Display which is attended by many hundreds of local residents.  This year it was again a spectacular event with the evening mist making it even more atmospheric. In recent years the Rugby Club has generously allowed Morpeth Lions to hold a collection as the crowds leave the grounds.

This year the money raised will again assist with the Lions’ Christmas activities.  These include ‘Meet the Lions’ which provides tea and entertainment for up to 150 local elderly and disabled people, food parcels for the elderly and about Christmas presents for around 70 children whose circumstances mean they would otherwise receive little or nothing.  The cost of these activities is over £4000.

This year’s “bonfire” collection broke all records as £623 was raised in less than half an hour.  Lion President Ian Brown commented “As ever we are reliant on the generosity of the public and cooperation from numerous friendly contacts.  The people of Morpeth and the surrounding area have always been supportive.  With their help we hope to provide a Happy Christmas for many who could be considered less fortunate”.
