National Busking Day was well and truly celebrated this weekend in Weymouth town centre with Weymouth & Portland Lions Club holding their annual Street Busk raising £831 for the Lions Charity Fund.
Funds raised by the Lions are mainly spent in the local community and they have recently made a grant of £500 to help fund a Defibrillator which will be placed at Weymouth Pavilion.
This is a very busy period for the Lions with three more fundraising events coming up very soon: Lions Youth Brass Band will be giving free open air concerts in Weymouth on Saturday 25th July and at Portland on the 27th, followed by a 50’s & 60’s dance, with Replay, at the Pavilion on the 31st July, and a Charity Golf Day at Weymouth on the 7th August.
Lion commented, “Congratulations to all involved, it was a good day. To get that sort of money in these times is good, thanks go to Norman, Ann, and Replay together with all others who played at the event without them all we would not have an event“
