Serving the Community

Obtaining our help

Many of the requests for our support come from the Citizens Advice Bureau or Social Services. Individual direct 


requests sometimes come via a member of our club, through other Lions clubs or the Lions Clubs organization. This list is by no means fully comprehensive. If you think we might be able to help you, or someone or some organization that you know of, please read our Grant Making Policy (Click Here) or use the form on our contact us 

page  to give us as much information as possible, including the locality where help is required. Your query will be referred to our Welfare Committee who carefully assess requests for funding and other assistance, and where applicable recommend these to the whole club for debate and approval.

Please be advised that we will NEVER ask anyone seeking a grant or aassistance from Loddon Valley Lions Club to make any payment to secure such grant or assistance.

Anyone contacting you by telephone, by letter, electronically (email) or by any other means and offering a grant or assistance from Loddon Valley Lions Club or any other Lions Club or Lions Clubs International in exchange for a fee or advance payment to secure that grant or assistance is doing so fraudulently and you should NOT proceed with the matter. 

The list below gives an idea of the types of support we have given previously.
