This was our first outdoor fund raising event of the year with the coconut shy, skittle alley and pick a pin games. During the annual late Spring Bank Holiday event Farnborough Lions raised a magnificent 280 for their work within the local community, nationwide and for Lions International projects worldwide. Our thanks  to the generous people of Farnborough for their support.

So what is this fundraising for, where does the money go?

Farnborough Lions object is to help those in need in the local community, nationally and worldwide with a mixture of practical help and financial support.
