Army cadets have helped Downham Lions to raise an estimated £1,373 for charities with Easter raffles.
The Lions club donated giant Easter eggs to a number of pubs and garages across the area to raise money for charities of their choice.
Members were joined by Cpls Josh Mahony and Max Thomas, from the Downham’s detachment of the army cadets, to sell raffle tickets in town.
Lions Club President, John Fox, said “We would like to thank Josh and Max for giving up their time to help us and also to thank the outlets who participated. We are delighted with the response of the Easter egg raffles and so pleased that the Downham Lions Club is able to help worthy charities.”
Eggs were raffled by: Palmers for Great Ormond Street Hospital, The Hare Arms in support of the Lions charity fund and Bees Motors and The Heron for Cancer UK. The Conservative Club is also supporting East Anglia Children’s Hospice by raffling an egg.
