At a recent meeting of the Lions Club of Morpeth £4236 was distributed to 24
local Charities and organisations. They had taken part in Morpeth Lions Dickens
of a Draw.
Morpeth Lion President, Margaret Trewick explained ‘For many years we have
organised the Dickens of a Draw which enables local charities and clubs to raise
much needed funds for themselves. With the Lions arranging the prizes and
paying for the 12,000 books of tickets, it is an excellent opportunity for those
looking to fundraise during the festive period. We as an organisation are always
looking for opportunities to help other local organisations to help themselves. We
calculate that in total over £100,000 has been distributed over the past 25 years. I
would also like to take this opportunity to thank those who kindly donated prizes,
as without their support it would not be possible for organisations to raise these
much needed funds.’
