As a fundraising charity, we aim to provide assistance to needy individuals from our own community and support the work of other charitable organisations within our local area. We also support the work of the Lions Clubs International Foundation (LCIF), which provides assistance to needy communities throughout the world. To read about the response of Lions worldwide to the most recent events, follow the link to the Lions International Web Site.
Recycling used spectacles has been a major activity for our club and more information on this project can be found on the ‘Spectacles recycling’ page. We are a 'model club' in the Lions International SightFirst campaign. As a model club we donated a total of £11,500 to this campaign.

As a service club operating within our local community, most of our support is directed towards local people and small locally based charities. Lions Clubs are completely autonomous and all decisions are made by the members of the club.
In the financial year ending 30th June 2015, we made a total of £47,883 in donations.
