Lions Clubs raise funds in a variety of ways and use the money to support local individuals, families and causes. Our biggest fund raiser is our annual fireworks display, which we hold at Newbury Race Course, but we also run a Duck Race, hold Easter Egg raffles and have stalls at other events in the town. As well as responding to individual requests for help, we provide caravan holidays for needy families,distribute store Vouchers at Christmas time and take disadvantaged groups for a day out at a theme park. Lions also give their time to act as stewards for events such as the Remembrance Parade and support other service organisations and charities in their fund raising. Newbury Lions are keen to raise awareness of sight-related issues and the Message in a Bottle scheme, which helps frontline services in emergency situations to get patients details quickly.
