Santa’s Sleigh Runs for 2019

Havant Lions have finished their Santa Sleigh runs for 2019.

On behalf of the Lions I would like to thank all the people that turned out and supported our fund raising effort. Every year the money raised increases, thanks to your generosity. This means that we can assist more local people who need our help.

I apologise that occasionally we have to cancel runs because of the weather, fortunately only once this year and considering how bad it has been we were lucky.

Merry Christmas and a happy New Year.

Lion Santa looks forward to seeing you all again next year.

Twinning 50th Anniversary


Image 1 of 9

On the weekend 17 – 19 May We met up with our very good friends from our twinned Lions club Valle D’or in the Mercure Hotel on Omaha Beach Golf Club.  The meeting was to celebrate our 50th anniversary of very successfull twinning with our French counterparts.  We had an informal dinner and get together on Friday and a very enjoyable Beach BBQ/Picnic on Saturday lunch time.  The grand event was the Gala Dinner in the evening where certificates and pennants were swapped,  Speeches were made by both Presidents and the District Governor of the French club.  This was followed by a delicious dinner washed down with copious amounts of French wine.  The weekend was great fun and enjoyed by all.


2019 – A New Sleigh

Lion Santa has requested that we try to get him a new sleigh before he comes out again in December this year.  If 2018 was anything to go by the sleigh routes are increasing in popularity and we need to modernise so that Santa can cope with the demand. 

We are looking for sponsors as well as design and build specialists to give us a hand getting this project off the ground.

If anybody can help please go to our contacts page on this website.

Thank You.
