Halls sponsors Sidmouth Lions’ Santa sleigh
Sidmouth estate agents give �275 towards Lions’ sleigh operating costs
CHRISTMAS is fast approaching and, in anticipation of Santa’s arrival, Sidmouth Lions are preparing his beautiful sleigh in readiness for his many visits and activities in and around the Sid Valley.
Each Christmas, mostly through the generosity of residents and visitors, Sidmouth Lions Club raises a significant amount of money that is used to support worthy causes and charity activities in the community.
To maximise the funds available for charity activities, each year Lions seek sponsorship to help cover the costs of operating the sleigh.
This year Halls Estate Agents have agreed to be sponsors and Halls partners and staff recently presented Lions Club president, Ian Skinner, with a cheque for �275 towards the sleigh operating costs.
David Gwillim, FNAEA partner at Halls Estate Agents said: “The partners and staff at Halls are especially pleased to be able to sponsor The Lions Club of Sidmouth with their Father Christmas Carol Float.
“We are particularly proud to be associated with such a great community service organisation which helps so many local worthy causes with fund raising and donations.”
