Spalding Lions have put a smile on the faces of a host of people from local good causes thanks to their highly successful Santa sleigh run.

President Richard Briers handed cheques totalling £1,720 to groups including Donington Brownies, Donington firefighters, Spalding and District PHAB Club, the 2nd Gosberton Brownies, Gosberton Rainbows, Monkshouse Guides, Pinchbeck Cubs and the 5th Spalding Guides.

Donations were also made to Morrisons, for its Sue Ryder charity appeal, and to Sainsbury’s, for its Anna’s Hope appeal, because the Lions collected on their premises.
