Caring for the local environment

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 calendar of events).

We meet on the 2nd and 4th Monday of the month at Crowne Plaza Hotel, Caversham Bridge, Richfield Avenue, Reading, RG1 8BD

For more information please call 0345 8337 431 and speak to Lion Jo Hamblin or email

Our Global Causes:Pillares of service

Every journey begins with a single step. One act of service, one encouraging word, one gift of generosity is often all it takes to bring hope where itís needed most.

Over the last 100 years, the kindness of Lions and Leos has multiplied across borders, oceans, and continents. With over 1.4 million members, we now have an opportunity to truly change our world. 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...


A big thank you to all our local sponsors and supporters. With your help we are 'making a difference right her in the Reading community'.
