Lions also support the community by giving their time to support other local events and by raising awareness of issues affecting health, especially sight.

We’re the ones in the hi-vis jackets acting as marshals at such events as Newbury Carnival and town parades and parking cars at the Berkshire County Fair and the Culturefest. We also help our friends in Newbury Round Table by stewarding locks and sluices along the canal.

Feeling Good. Looking Good.

Feeling Good. Looking Good...

Lions support Newbury’s Feel Good Fortnight by raising awareness of the effects of Diabetes and encourage everyone to have their eyes and ears tested regularly. 

Doing good.

More recently we have taken our BBQ to various events around the area to help the organisers with their own fundraising activities. In 2015 we supported the Classic Car Show at Newbury College and Thatcham Apple Day and we are looking forward to helping them again this year.
