SIR - Hitchin Lions would like to thank the public for their generosity in contributing approximately £700 to our collection in Hitchin Market Place on Saturday, December 17 to pay for Meals on Wheels over the Christmas period. The total amount required for Hitchin and the surrounding villages for the period December 19-26 increases every year and we have been fortunate enough to raise enough in previous years. However, the 450 meals provided this year cost almost £1200 with the difference being met from the Club's charitable reserves. Thank you also to the traders who tolerated the loud music from the Gavioli Fair organ (there is no volume control!).
