A huge thank you to everyone who took part in the 2023 Henley Lions Club Swimarathon and to the Henley Herald for the excellent coverage of the event.
For the 20th consecutive year Henley Lions Club organised, packed and delivered circa 100 Christmas food parcels to residents of Henley and surrounding villages. The parcels contained a selection of basics as well as a few holiday treats. They were distributed to families and individuals who could benefit from a bit of extra help at this time of year. Our sincere thanks go out to all of those organisations and individuals who helped us make this annual project possible.
Santa had an excellent time touring the streets of Henley in his trusty sleigh just prior to his big night. He and his teams of helpers were out for 8 nights and the generous residents of Henley contributed over £5,300 to the Henley Lions Club’s charity fund in the process. A huge thank you to everyone who contributed and to everyone who was involved in making this event happen.
This year’s annual Swimarathon took place on 26 March 2022 and proved a very successful event. We missed having this event for two years due to the Covid pandemic so were eager to get it going once again. We had teams from a number of local schools, clubs and organisations and raised circa £4,500 for charity, half of which will go to the charities being supported by the teams that took part.
