Members of the Lions Club of Reading and a group from the Reading Kickz team recently helped out with refurbishment work at the Island Farm Donkey Santuary in Wallingford.

The Lions Club of Reading is also proud to be associated with the Reading Kickz Project. The Reading Kickz project is managed by the 'Royals' (Reading FC) with the aim of engaging young people living in disadvantaged communities who may otherwise be difficult to reach. Its vision is "to target some of the most disadvantaged areas of the country in order to create safer, stronger, more respectful communities through the development of young peoples' potential".

The scheme is designed to:

engage young people (aged 12-18yrs) in a range of constructive activities

create routes into education, training and employment

encourage volunteering within projects and throughout the target neighbourhoods

break down barriers between the police and young people

reduce crime and anti social behaviour in the targeted neighbourhoods

increase the playing, coaching and officiating opportunities for participants
