We are a busy part of Shakespeare Lions club and active in all sorts of ways.

Here are just a few of the things we are involved with.

We award grants to children and adults with learning and physical disabilities.

We give so they can enjoy and learn from activities and residential events

that otherwise they could not attend. 

Disadvantaged children have had paid lessons at Riding for the Disabled.

Plus we have helped schools, Scout and Guide groups get new equipment and contributed

when Scout and Guide groups were fundraising for overseas trips.

The Citizens' Advice Bureau (CAB) also administer a sum of money on our behalf

which they use to buy school uniforms, furniture and white goods for people

who can not afford need those essentials.

For the last 30 years we have made Christmas Day visits to the patients

in the Nicol Ward which is the intermediate care unit at Stratford Hospital. And we

intend going again when current restrictions allow; there is nothing like

a simple gift and a chat to spread some Christmas cheer. 

 We give a grant towards decorating the ward with flowers.  

We've also granted Welcombe Radio money towards important new equipment and

carried out DIY, gardening and re-decorating tasks for people who were unable to

do this for themselves and couldn’t afford to pay professionals.

 

And the list goes on and on, and on.

We consider any request and help if we can because our club takes its service role very

seriously. As Lions International is a registered charity  we must fundraise constantly to

help people in need. If you have a fundraising idea or would like to help in any way

we would love to hear from you.
