THANK YOU FOR EVERY PENNY


If you have ever put a coin in a collection, supported one of our projects, attended an event we have organised or been involved with our Lions Club in any way - thank you.


We are proud to help at the heart of local communities with every penny raised 

going direct to good causes.


Not one penny is spent on administration as all running costs are funded by our members.
