Supporters, Giving, Sponsorship, Advertising & Charity

There are a number of ways that the community supports the work that we undertake. The First of these is through membership of the 200 club which supplements the main fund raising events. The Second is through the Lions giving website. The Third is through direct sponsorship of the events and the Fourth is through businesses taking advertising for our many fund raising events. The Club has CIO status and the Charity Commission Reference Number is 1179721.
