THE GIANT EASTER EGG RAFFLE
Tonbridge Lions Club is holding an Easter Egg Raffle at pubs and other venues in Tonbridge and neighbouring villages to raise funds to help local charities, groups, and individuals. You might have seen the giant 1.5 kg chocolate eggs in numerous places just waiting for you to sign your name and pay your £1 for a chance of winning 1 of 21 such eggs.
The first draw to take place was at Hildenborough Farmersí Market on Tuesday 2nd April where 100 customers had signed up to support Tonbridge Lions Club in just two mornings and the picture shows the clubís 2nd Vice President, Lion Richard Hill, who visited the market to make the draw and present the egg to the lucky winner Jean Swales. Also shown in the photograph are Julie Kury, who ran the raffle at Hildenborough Farmersí Market, and Lion Dixon Hawkins, who is managing the raffle for Tonbridge Lions.
There are still 19 eggs to be won at the venues listed below. Customers should be able to enter the raffle at many locations until Easter. Hildenborough Farmersí Market held its raffle a little early to make way for its programme of Easter activities over the next couple of weeks. The Cock Horse at Hildenborough has also signed up 100 customers and will soon be making their draw.
