OUR MISSION

Lions Clubs International was founded in 1917 and is the largest voluntary organisation in the world. Its principal goals are to promote good citizenship, to take an active interest in the community, to serve its needs and to relieve distress.

After a quiet start to the year we are back in business!

The money we raised from fireworks and the Santa collections is already being put to good use. At Christmastime, we distributed store vouchers to100 families referred to us as needing a little extra support. We also responded to individual requests for household items from those in need and unable to fund them.  

We have booked ahead for our caravan holidays which will benefit up to 9 families, many of whom have never been on holiday before. We are also planning to take a coach load of children and families to a special Lions Day Out at Paulton’s Park in May. The rest of the money will be held in our welfare fund to be used throughout the year where help is needed.

Our next fundraiser will be our Giant Easter Egg raffles … watch this space for details!

Helping Our Community

The Lions Club of Newbury has been supporting the local community since it’s formation in 1970. Members are ordinary people like you who get together to help those who may need a bit of extra support from time to time. Organising fund raising activities, acting as stewards at other groups’ events and giving direct service while having fun are just some of the things we do.

Please contact us, if you have a few hours to spare every now and then and would like to help us.

Our Aim

The Lions primary aim is to serve and to help the local community
