The Felixstowe Lions are a small local charity that is active in the local community. They fundraise to help local charities as well as running their own activities in the community. They did a great job of spreading Christmas cheer in 2020 with the Felixstowe Christmas Lights and the Wave to Santa Tour of Felixstowe, which was a great success.
David Cole, who works for John Good Logistics in Felixstowe is an active member of the Lions and applied for the championing grant in December after their usual fundraising activities couldn’t go ahead. We also double matched a fundraising event that took place earlier in the year bringing our total donations in 2020 to £1,997.60. The funding will help support charities activities after most of their fundraising activities were cancelled due to the pandemic.
The local magazine, Spotlight on Felixstowe included details of the donation in their January issue.
