From Huntingdon Grafham Water Lions Club – Safari 2019
LIONS SAFARI WALK TO CELEBRATE ITS 40TH ANNIVERSARY on 12th MAY
Since 1979 Huntingdon Grafham Water Lions Club have held their Annual Safari Walk,
a sponsored walk around Grafham Water. This year, we will be celebrating the 40th anniversary of the event.
In the past 39 years the walk has raised over £200,000, benefiting many local charities and worthy causes and will take place on Sunday 12th May this year. We are hoping for plenty of interest from local Charities, Clubs and individuals, interested in raising money for their own worthy cause. Walkers retain 90% of the money raised for their cause, and 10% is donated to the Lions Club for their chosen charity. The Lions Club deal with the entire organisation required for a successful day, all participants need do is to obtain sponsors, do the walk, and collect the money.
This year we will be raising money to support our MESSAGE IN A BOTTLE efforts. Other Clubs can participate for their own good cause and all we ask is for a 10% contribution towards our worthy cause.
Alongside the walk this year we will be holding a CAR SHOW giving enthusiasts the opportunity to show off their cherished vehicle at MARLOW CAR PARK, GRAFHAM WATER.
Any Clubs or individuals interested in taking part, either for their own cause or The Lions project, or to help sponsor the event, please contact:
