The Easter Lion Strikes Again
The Lions Club of Newbury, thinly disguised as the Easter Bunny, have been out and about distributing the Giant Eggs which are raffled in aid of The Lions funds....which all go to those in need in our district.
These eggs are not for the faint hearted! They contain a stunning 1 kilo of chocolate and so can be shared generously with friends and relations.
A huge thank you to all the venues that support the Newbury Lions at Easter.

2017 is the year Lions Clubs around the world are celebrating 100 years of Service in the heart of their local communities. As part of these celebrations, the 770+ Clubs in Britain and Ireland have been challenged to meet a series of targets centred on health, youth, supporting others, the environment and recognising local achievers.
As we approach the half way point in this our Centennial Year, the Lions Club of Newbury proudly records its achievements to date in 2017.
The Newbury Lions were at the Yattendon and Frilsham Village Fete on the Late May Bank Holiday with our roundabout.
All the members of the Lions Club of Newbury are delighted to welcome Lion Sally-Jane to the Club.
Twenty giant Easter Eggs were placed in venues across Newbury and Thatcham before Easter and were raffled among customers and staff. We’ve collected all the money and are pleased to announce that a grand total of £2,216.66 was donated to our welfare funds. Thank you to everyone who took part either hosting or buying tickets.
