Christmas Hamper Appeal & Santa Sleigh December 2016

Hoping to see Santa in Cranleigh?

Santa and his helpers will be visiting Cranleigh on various evenings in December (see below).

You can track his progress through the streets of Cranleigh using our Santa Tracker.

Christmas Hamper Appeal

Each year the Cranleigh Lions make up over 100 Christmas hampers that are delivered to individuals and families in and around Cranleigh who otherwise wouldn't have the luxuries that many of us have at this time of year.

The Cranleigh Lions need your help to fill these hampers and so Saturday 3rd December 2016 and Saturday 10th December 2016 from 10am to 4pm we will be outside of the Co-Op and Sainsbury's in Cranleigh, collecting donations of food items such as biscuits, Christmas pudding, coffee, tea, sugar, jams, honey, marmalade, mince pies, sweets and chocolate, soups and canned foods or a cash donation.

With the cash donations we buy eggs and some additional luxury items, if people haven't already bought those for us, make up the hampers and distribute them in time for Christmas.

If you're not sure what to donate please ask one of the Lions on the way into the supermarket. If possible we prefer to collect cash on the 10th December 2016.
