CHARITES & DONATIONS
Lakeside Chapter HOG is proud to be supporting throughout 2019 a local charity Aaron Lewis Foundation. The foundation carries out some amazing work in memory of Lieutenant Aaron Lewis and is committed to transforming lives through sport and community action in the local area and nationally for service and ex-service personnel.
Please watch this space for upcoming events where we will be supporting our our chosen charity. The total money raised by Lakeside Chapter was presented to the Aaron Lewis Foundation at our Natter Night in February 2019 for the amount of £2,125.33.
Every year we make charitable donations to the children ward at Basildon and Thurrock University hospital, where we ride up to the hospital with surprise gifts and toy's.
At Easter we organise special "Easter Egg Ride", we give chocolate treats,
and at Christmas our "Toy Run Ride" where we donate lots of toys to the children.

Aaron Lewis Foundation: ALF
On the 15th December 2008, Lieutenant Aaron Lewis of 29 Commando Regiment Royal Artillery, was killed in action in Afghanistan. He was just 26 and on his first operational deployment.
Aaron wanted to make a difference in the world, bringing help to those in need. It was that belief which gave him the courage, hope and enthusiasm to deploy to Afghanistan.
Two years after his death, the Aaron Lewis Foundation was established by his family and friends to continue to make a difference in his memory. With unity and teamwork at its core, Aaron’s family, friends and former service colleagues work together to raise funds for causes close to Aaron’s heart, providing access to sport and wellbeing for all, while at the same time furthering his legacy.
The Foundation also provides easy access to fundraising via its dedicated
Just Giving page.
