Saturday 26th August. 11.00am – 3.30pm. Meet at East Looe Sea Front. All welcome.
Wear Blue, Make a Noise and Help Raise Funds for the Looe Marine Conservation Group
The Lions Club of Looe are organising another Land and Sea Day this year, with lots of music and song, on Saturday 26th August 2017. The purpose of the day, apart from having some fun, is to publicise the work of two chosen local charities, one representing the Sea and the other the Land, and to raise money for them and the Lions Charities. This year the Lions have invited the Looe Marine Conservation Society to represent the Sea with Looe in Bloom the Land.
VOLUNTEERS NEEDED TO HELP ENSURE THIS EVENT RUNS SMOOTHLY – If you can spare some time please contact firstname.lastname@example.org.
Where to meet.
The event will start at 11.00 a.m. with the Looe Marine Conservation Group meeting on East Looe Sea Front at 11.00 am. We’ll then parade through the Town and, after a break for lunch, back to the sea front for 2.00 p.m.
What to bring – your voice and a smile!
During the day we’ll be singing, with the Lions and a host of local musicians, songs with a nautical theme whist encouraging the visitors and locals alike to join in and support our group.
What to wear – turning Looe White and Blue.
Not everyone can sing like a mermaid! – but that doesn’t have to stop you joining in. By coming along wearing blue and white we can turn Looe into a sea of blue. Flags, scarves, hats, banners, tops, sashes, indeed anything in blue and white for the Sea will help to make the day bright, colourful and cheerful whether singing, playing, or just cheering the participants on. The brighter the better and any shade of blue will do.
We also hope that local businesses will support the Looe Marine Conservation Group and display blue and white flags outside their premises.
Visitors and residents will be encouraged to show their support for the Looe Marine Conservation Group by wearing blue, joining in the songs being sung, waving blue flags provided and donating.
All the money raised and collected by the Lions, with Land supporters and the Sea supporters in friendly rivalry, will be in collecting receptacles which are very clearly identified as being for one side or the other. At the end of festivities, the Lions Treasurer will establish how much each side has raised and which side has attracted the most money.
Everyone is a winner.
As in previous years the winning Charity will receive 60% of the net total collected. 20% will go to the other Charity and the Lions Charities Fund will receive the remaining 20%.
