READING LIONS CLUB is a local group of volunteers who aim to promote the health and wellbeing of the Reading community by improving the local environment, helping individuals in times of need, supporting Reading based community groups and local charities. Every penny raised goes into our community projects. Our aim is to serve the people of Reading and make a difference. We are always seeking new and fun ways of raising money. Lions Clubs are also members of an international network of men and women who work together to answer the needs that challenge communities across the world.

Would you like to help your community?
Can you spare some time to help serve your community?
The Lions Club of Reading meets two evenings a month to organise our community and fundraising events. Giving makes us all feel better for living. We have fun too and our reward is the satisfaction in what we do for others. If this sounds like something for you then why not come along to one of our meetings or join us at a fundraising event or help out at one of our community service projects. Or maybe join us for a social event (see calender of events).
We meet on the second and fourth Monday of the month at the Prudential Ibis Club, Scours Lane, Tilehurst, Reading, RG30 6AY.
Any help is gratefully received - and hopefully you will enjoy the activity!

Thatís why weíre uniting our global service around five areas of need. These Global Causes present significant challenges to humanity, and we believe itís our turn to meet them. More...
