Projects for youth- just one of many we support with community help
With the community and public help, our Lions Club provides support, sponsorship and donates to may causes. By modern technology we can reach out to a wider audience and hopefully provide more to those who deserve and need help. On this page we will provide a conduit to contribute direct to our secure projects account. All money donated using the bank account number provided will be put to the project you specify from the list. We are a registered Charitable Trust CC27759 and accounts are open for public scrutiny. Lions pay for their own administration so all money collected for charity is returned to charity. Only when fundraising via sausage sizzles, events and sales are the direct cost of any purchased/site items used, paid out. EG. Sausages, bread, gas etc and even then Lions and supporters often donate from own pockets. The list below contain links to many sites for more explanation on their aims,
