Welfare

01 March 2016

We respond to requests for help with household items, clothing and equipment and typically involve one-off contributions towards their purchase. Examples include:

  • Food vouchers
  • Stair gates
  • Carpets
  • School uniforms
  • Washing machines

Requests should be made via social workers or health visitors or a West Berkshire Council support team. They should be emailed to welfare@newburylions.org.uk.

We also support appeals for specialised equipment and, where the cost is high, combine with other local clubs to find the funding needed. We have helped to fund specialised wheelchairs and a trike for children and a motability scooter for a local disabled gentleman.
