Watch this space for the next event. 

Reading Lions Club reaches out to small local community groups and small local charities in the Reading area to offer financial support. Many local community groups do not have access to grant funding or the manpower / resources to invest in significant fundraising and yet they continue to provide a valued service to our community even during these challenging times.  

Through our own fundraising events we set aside a sum of money to distribute in small community grants, each of up to £750.00 to support local community projects.

Each successful group must be able to demonstrate how the grant benefits the local community and mirrors our own objectives which is to 'promote the health and wellbeing of the Reading community by improving the local environment, supporting our youth and helping individuals in times of need'. Any grant awarded must be used for a specific project and not be used for general day to day running costs.

A big thank you to our following sponsors for your support
