LiDBA information

The aim of The Liphook & District Businessmenís Association [LiDBA] is to be of service to the community, particularly the young and disabled. The Association assists other local charitiesí fund raising events as well as raising money for local deserving causes.

The Association has a monthly dinner meeting at a local hostelry at which fund raising events are discussed and planned. These meetings are very lighthearted, but purposeful.

In between times, there is a full social calendar which includes, for example: brewery visits, wine tasting, skittles, a safari supper, golf, slot car racing, etc.

For many years, a Charity Auction was held at Bohunt School, not your normal quiet saleroom stuff, but all of the school premises were used for the whole weekend. Months were spent collecting all sorts of furniture, pianos (nobody will ever forget moving the pianos!!), toys, clothes and bric-a-brac. The best were auctioned, the rest were sold off in a giant departmental jumble sale.

In 1991 the auction was replaced by LiDBA's first charity Bike Ride. This annual event was our main charity effort held every June for 25 years. It is still one of the premier charity fund raising events in the area, regularly attracting in excess of 1200 riders and consistently raising over £50,000 each year, but is now being organised by The Crankers. LiDBA continue to raise funds for local charities by organising other local events.

Not all members are in business, although this was the case when the Association was formed in 1974, hence the Associationís name. Our members now come from all walks of life and what they share is a wish to help the community whilst enjoying themselves socially.
