 Father Christmas Sleigh


Each December we take our sleigh around the streets of Bodmin collecting for Lions & other charities.
We try to be onsite just before Six & finish by Eight.

Update 15th Feb 2018

On Monday 12th February 2018 we held a presentation evening at the Masons Arms.
Club President Derek Williamson  was delighted to present a cheque for £4000.00
to Catherine Robins and Tracey Hawley of Cornwall Hospice Care.
Derek was also very happy to receive over £ 300.00 collected by the Greenaways from St. Piran's Close,where they had staged the Christmas Lights display noted as Cornwall's finest.
Lions would like to thank all those involved including Walker Lines Steel,ASDA Bodmin,Barclays Bodmin
and everyone who put so much into making the event such a happy time.
We hope to see again you next year


Update 26th Jan 2018

After three weeks of continuous activity in December 2017, Bodmin Lions are delighted to announce a total collection of £5713, which will be augmented by £1000 match funding from Barclays Bank, Bodmin.
This is entirely due to the hard work of all those who took part, but most of all a tribute to the generosity of the people of the town.
We shall be able to make a significant donation to Cornwall Hospice Care on Monday 12th. February at the Mason’s Arms

Update 05th Dec

Dear Boxwell Park and Barons Meadow people.
So sorry that the Lions Sleigh ran out of time tonight......we just could not go on disturbing residents after 8.30. Please assure all children that this won't happen on Christmas Eve.

Father Christmas has magic powers on that one night.
Until then please come and see us at Asda on the next two Saturdays between 12.00 & 4.00 when we will be very happy to see you.

Bodmin Lions and Father Christmas.

Sleigh update Monday 11th 2017
