Fish n Chip Social afternoon

The Club Members have decided to hold our Fish n Chip Social on an afternoon rather than an evening.   Hopefully this will suit many of our regulars who found that having fish n chips followed by fruit pie at 8.30 in the evening was a bit too late.

so here are the details of our next Fish n Chip social –  Wednesday 2nd October at Hedon Royal British Legion.   Doors open at 11.30;am, lunch will be at approximately 12.30.

With a bit of arm twisting we have Martyn to entertain us after lunch.

tickets are £7.59 and are available now, just ask one of the Holderness Lions and you will be pointed in the right direction.

We do hope this new arrangement will be agreeable to many of our regulars  and perhaps attractive some new comers.

we look forward to seeing you on the day.




Fun +SportsDay for the Disabled

Despite a gloomy weather forecast those Lions and guests who attended the annual sports day for the disabled held on Sandall Park, Doncaster had a great time.

we had the pleasure of having 4 of the students from the International Youth camp helping us and they were a great asset.

just a pity that some clubs and guests were put off by the thought of inclement weather.

Paull Car Boot

Busy day, Saturday 3rd August, as well as being at Asda, Bilton some Holderness Lions will be manning a stall at The Car Boot Sale in Paull.

you might find just what you have been searching for , plenty to browse through.   Sure you will find a bargain or two.

hapoy hunting.

Fund raising at Asda, Bilton

On Saturday 3rd August members of Holderness Lions will be at Asda store in Bilton from 11am giving customers the opportunity of entering our draw  to try to win the Holiday Hamper.   Cost just £1.00 a go.

the case is worth winning on its own without the contents.

look forward to seeing you there.


Preston Show

Had another great day at Preston Show on Saturday.  Weather not as hot as it was during the week but not tipping it down either

Our Bottle Stall was popular and we sold out by about 3pm.

thanks to all who supported us.

Race night

What a great night it was, bit down on numbers, but a good time was had by all and Holderness Lions will be adding over £300 to our Charity Account.

many thanks to all who supported this event.

the horses have now been put out to pastures in order to get ready for their next outing.   Hope all the jockeys are keeping fit ready for the future.

many thanks.


Fund raising event at Asda

This is a new fund raising idea for us – A Holiday Hamper

we have gathered a number of items which could come in useful for your Summer Holiday.

they are all contained in a very smart case, which is also a very useful holiday item.

Members of Holderness Lions will be giving customers at Asda, Bilton the opportunity of winning this Hamper on Saturday 3rd August 2019.  All for the princely sum of £1.00.

just a reminder the money we raise at these events is used for the benefit of our local community, first and foremost.

hope to see some of you there
