Wroxham & Hoveton Lions Club raise £1500

In December, Regional Director Mark Quinn attended the Wroxham & Hoveton Lions Club Christmas meeting, receiving a cheque for £1500 following their fantastic fundraising efforts.

The Lions Club hosted a concert in October at Broadland High School, where the celebrated RAF Squadronaires performed a medley of 'big band' anthems to the crowd.

Concert organiser Mick Holden, who served in the RAF himself for 38 years, was proud to split the proceeds of the successful night with the RAF Benevolent Fund and the Lions Charity Fund.  

"We had an incredible night where the atmosphere and music were top quality," Mick recounts. Lions Club President Terry Vout, pictured with Mick and Mark, presented the cheque.

The RAF Benevolent Fund's Mark Quinn added: "What Mick and the Club have done for the Fund is absolutely fantastic. To have their support means a lot and I hope we can do more together in the future as the support has been truly wonderful.

"The RAF Squadronaires are always a great crowd-pleaser, and it's great to see people have enjoyed such a magnificent evening filled with music played by world-class performers."

The RAF Squadronaires can be traced back to 1939, when many of London's professional musicians were recruited in the RAF’s Central Band. They recently performed for over 300 people at the RAF Cosford Tornado Ball, where the Fund also benefited from the proceeds.
