Uckfield, Crowborough, and Heathfield food banks will benefit from residents going to their local pubs to buy a raffle ticket and a pint or should it be a pint and a raffle ticket. Uckfield and district Lions club are very grateful to pubs around the district for their support with the Easter egg raffle, a 1 kilo Easter egg was the prize. Lions service committee decided that in these difficult times, it was best to pay for the Easter eggs from general funds rather than taking from the monies raised by the pubs, leaving a total of £4000 to be distributed between the foodbanks in the area of the pubs.

Lion Graham then found that there was not a foodbank in Heathfield and any donations to Heathfield foodbank are dealt with by Uckfield. So after consultation with Lorraine Kirkwood manager of Uckfield Foodbank, it has been agreed to donate £3000 to Uckfield foodbank with the agreement that £1000 is used in Heathfield area and £1000 for Crowborough foodbank.
