Wenceslas 2019/20

Farnham Lions are grateful to the residents of Farnham and Haslemere who have generously donated funds to Project Wenceslas which will enable those in need to keep warm and cook hot meals this winter.  By the end of January donations totalled 19230.35.  Prior to lockdown Lions paid out 8,934.05 enabling 150 people to keep warm and have hot meals.  After lockdown it was no longer possible to meet those in need in the normal way.  However the Scheme is happy to be able to assist those referred by the Farnham Coronavirus Support Fund and has paid out a further 3849.38.

Government Regulations applying to Utility Companies mean that customers can no longer be cut off and the Companies must extend credit to them.  However Lions are well aware that this is simply building up further amounts of fuel debt which will need to be settled at some point in the future.  Consequently Farnham Lions will be launching Project Wenceslas again this year.  In the mean time any donations can be made online at www.justgiving.com/lions-wenceslas or by cheque, payable to the Lions Club of Farnham and endorsed WFP on the back, sent to Lion Treasurer, 1 Acheulian Close Farnham GU9 8PL

All payments are made directly to the fuel utility companies for the benefit of clients of Citizens Advice Waverley and families nominated by home school link workers, Foodbank and Family Centres in Farnham and Haslemere, thus ensuring that every penny received by the Lions is spent on relieving fuel debt and poverty. 

The whole exercise is made possible by generous sponsorship from the Herald Group Newspapers.
