Following the success of our first Dream Scheme venture during 2016/17 we have decided to repeat the process and will again be inviting and involving local clubs, organisation’s and charities to bid for funding from us to enable them to fulfil a long held Dream.
The Dream may be in any category but should be aimed at either a standalone opportunity or a contribution to a project, which without additional funding, may not be completed. In order to respond to your submissions we have set aside a fund exclusively for the scheme. Organisations are invited to submit their requests to East Grinstead & District Lions Club who will be the final arbiters of where the funds will be allocated. Submissions should be addressed to:-
Community Services Chairman, East Grinstead & District Lions Club, 14 Sackville Lane, East Grinstead, West Sussex. RH19 2AU
Community Services 2018
With the people of East Grinstead's help we have funded a wide range of projects and we will show below is just a sample of some of them made during 2018. Some events are held every year and have become part of the East Grinstead calendar. Providing this level of service support is only achieved thanks to the generousity of those in the East Grinstead area in supporting our fund raising activities. We thank you most sincerely.

Special Needs Holidays - a new service
Holidays - for the the future we are taking a different approach to the provision of holidays for people with special needs who would not normally be able to find or afford a suitable holiday which provides the right level of support. We will be liaising with specialists in our community to identify the most needy people. Please use the Contact Us page if you wish to discuss this with us.
