185 residents from the Deepings and surrounding villages took part in the Deepings Lions free Easter Lucky Dip.
The draw was held last Tuesday (March 30) with 142 winners announced the following day.
Ten lucky winners of the top prize of large chocolate eggs, picked out by the club’s mascot Lion Rory in a live broadcast on Facebook.
The winners were: Louise Meadows, Claire Sears, Chris Bamford, Nigel Markham, Lucy Mason, Karen Brisbane, Libby Stygall, Micky Culff, Laura Jean Pick and Brian Hicks.
There were also prizes of 100 small Easter Eggs and 32 bags of wildflower seed to help bring back the bees.
Prizes were delivered to the winners’ homes on Easter Monday.
One of the organisers of the event, Lion Dave Turner said: “As we couldn’t run our traditional Easter fund raising raffle this year we wanted to arrange a free fun event for residents to enjoy as a ‘thank you’ for the fantastic support they gave us during Santa’s sleigh rounds.
"We also wanted to give out as many prizes as we could. That was made possible by a generous discount from Tesco in Market Deeping. Our club members were really pleased to see the wonderful smiling residents as their prizes were delivered to their door steps.”
