The Easter Lion Strikes Again

23 March 2017

The Lions Club of Newbury, thinly disguised as the Easter Bunny, have been out and about distributing the Giant Eggs which are raffled in aid of The Lions funds....which all go to those in need in our district.

These eggs are not for the faint hearted! They contain a stunning 1 kilo of chocolate and so can be shared generously with friends and relations.

A huge thank you to all the venues that support the Newbury Lions at Easter.
