Bexhill Lions Club recently presented a cheque for £500 to Bexhill Caring Community. At the presentation, Lion President Clare Kersley explained that this was the proceeds from the inaugural Wheel and Walk held in mid-September, topped up by the Club to the round number.

Clare thanked all those who took part, together with family and friends for making such a great effort and making it a successful inaugural event. Clare added “We would like to thank our sponsors and supporters who made this event possible and which allowed us to make this donation to Bexhill Caring Community. We are delighted to be able to help them, as they provide such great and much needed services to the residents of Bexhill.”

In accepting the cheque, Jackie Haggerty, Manager of Bexhill Caring Community said “THANK YOU ALL so very much for the wonderful cheque you gave us today from Bexhill Lions for £500 from the proceeds of Bexhill’s first Wheel & Walk. Notice that I say “first”, this means onwards and upwards for future years as following the professionalism shown by all of your team this year, I know this event will be a resounding success in the future. Please pass on our sincere thanks to everyone involved, we look forward to working with you all again soon.”

Andrea Etheridge, Head of FUNdraising added “We are delighted to announce that Wheel and Walk will take place again next year.
