The Lions Den!


You have no doubt heard of the 'Dragons Den' - well we recently held the second of our very own 'Lions Den' events (Community Grant event). Applications were received from a number of small local community groups in Reading and small local Reading charities. The grant has to be used for the benefit of the local community and 'make a difference'. Our aim was to award small grants up to 500.00 each.

We were very impressed with all the entries received and humbled to hear how local groups are helping those in need in the Reading area. Those successfully through the first review stage were then asked to attend the 'Lions Den' and pitch for a grant.

All the participants have now been advised of the results and the grants are now being distributed to the lucky participants. If you were one of the lucky groups many congratulations; if you were not successful this time - please keep up your good work and perhaps consider entering again next time.

All the money used for the grants is raised through the generosity of local Reading people, so a very BIG THANKYOU to everyone who has supported us in our fundraising efforts.

With your help grants have been made to:


'Together we are making a difference'

Well done to everyone that took part - and watch this space for details of the 2019 'Lions Den' grant programme.
