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.
In January, 2022, we were able to donate £1,500 to the Shakespeare Hospice.
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.
We have now started collecting empty blister packs that are taken to Superdrug for recycling.
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.
Litter picking is just an extra thing that Lions do for the community as a whole.
Our planter which is part of the ‘Stratford in Bloom’ initiative and is located in Henley Street and has recently been given a face lift!
We consider any requests for the community so please fill-in our contact form
