OUR FUNDRAISING EFFORTS 

We have raised more than 400,000 over the last ten years for local and national causes. Every penny raised is used for our community projects. Nothing is taken for administration.

We have an active fundraising committee who are always seeking new ways to raise monies in support of our various local and international projects.  Some of our key event successes are detailed below.

We are always seeking sponsoring for our events so if you think you could help please visit our 'Events' page or contact us at fundraising@readinglions.org.uk
