Wenceslas Steps Out Again!
Following the remarkable success of their Project Wenceslas last year Farnham Lions are repeating the exercise in 2013. Once again the Lions are linking up with Farnham CAB and Farnham Sure Start with the aims of eliminating Fuel Debt and ameliorating Fuel Poverty in our local area. The funds which are used to achieve these demanding aims are the donations from local elderly people who most generously pass on their Winter Fuel Payments for the benefit of those who need the assistance far more than they do.
The situation is repeating itself this year; new people are on the debt register; and the fuel prices are even more of a challenge to the many families who are on or near the breadline. So today, on behalf of the Lions, and in the presence of our CAB and Sure-Start colleagues, the Farnham Mayor Paddy Blagden is officially launching Wenceslas 2013.
Thanks to the generous sponsorship of the Farnham Herald and Riverprint the full publicity will "hit the streets" in the Herald on 8th November - and donations can be made now via www.justgiving.com/lions-wenceslas
Wenceslas is also being launched this year - for the first time - in Haslemere and word has got out in the Lionistic Community and five other Lions Clubs in West Surrey including Godalming, Guildford and Cranleigh are running their own versions of the project for the first time in 2013.
So........."In their master's steps they trod" with the message "Ye who now will bless the poor shall yourselves find blessing.
