Where the fundraising goes to?
Our biggest fund raising event of the year is the annual House to House collection.
Over 80% of the money coleced in that appeal goes back into the Christmas hampers and vouchers supplied to the 500 plus families who need at Christmas time.
The remainder of the money goes on supporting people with unexpected crisis in changes in family cicumstance and living conditions.
Lions Club Members pay annual dues and do internal fund raising to ensure that all external money colleceted goes back in supporting the Services that we offer.
You can help us with our good work as always using our donate page, we do appreciate all donations and aim to always use them for those in need.
