CAR BOOTS BOOST CHARITY FUND
Hereford Lions Club’s weekly Saturday car boot sales through Spring and Summer have raised £20,000 for the club’s Charity Fund since being launched four years ago. Held in a field on Roman Road opposite Bookers and South Hereford Garages, the car boots have proved to be the most popular and friendly in town. Boots are just £5 and there is no entrance charge for buyers. They will start again next year.
GOLFERS HIT THE BALL FOR CHARITY
Hereford Lions Club’s annual golf tournament held in August at the Herefordshire Golf Club at Wormsley was well supported and raised several thousand £s for Lions Charity Fund.. Husband and wife Lou and Many Haines proved to be big hitters on the day, Lou winning the prize for the longest drive for over 55’s and Mandy taking top place in the under 55’s category. The winning team was: Mark Sandford, Stuart Humphries, Eamon Croft and Dex Mutgattroyd. To book a team in for 2016 contact Lion John Oldman on 01432 760685.

TRACTORS ON PARADE
Tractors are a common sight on the country lanes of Herefordshire but 50 or more vintage ones snaking like a conga line through the countryside is a sight to behold. To join in the early summer Lions Tractor Run contact Lion Mike Hughes on 01432 880293.
