Reading Lions Club has a great social aspect too with many fun events annually. Many members join after first registering and spending time as a ‘Friend of Reading Lions’. Our ‘Friends’ are often too busy with family or work commitments to join but wish to donate time occasionally to make a difference.
Volunteering at our Fireworks spectacular, Santa’s Float rounds and other events help us deliver community events as well as fundraising and are invaluable to us as well as our community.
Contact us to enquiry or register as a Friend of Reading Lions.
