Uckfield Lions raise £1555 from cancelled rally

Uckfield Lions cancelled their car rally but still made a profit!

Lion Chris had spent many weeks planning a route and contacting potential entrants for the Lions 17th Classic car rally, with three weeks before the event he had 64 entries and 99 meals had been booked

All was looking good and then the Rule of 30 for a gathering came in for Covid 19 and Lions were forced to cancel the event

Lion Chris contacted all the entrants personally to advised of the unfortunate cancellation and was delighted to be told all the entrants were happy for their entry fees to be put into Lions funds

In all a total of £1555 profit was added to Lions funds for local good causes

This year’s car rally would have been to 17th of running, over the years raising £28349 for good causes

Uckfield Lions would like to thank all the Entrants for their support and generously in donating their fees and hope to see them next year.

Lion’s thanks also goes out to Mel @ Rowan at the Halfway House Isfield for allowing Lions the use of their grounds and facilities, see you next year

The Lions are on Uckfield FM with Tony Williams on Thursday 22nd October 2020
