Summer Fund Raising Campaign

 
 

NO BOTTLE THIS YEAR!

 

Due to COVID, Havant Lions won’t be able to carry out our normal Bottle Collection this year.

Sadly, this comes at a time when more local people are in need than ever before – In the last 3 months we have spent more than £4000 to support local people, including providing £2000 worth of £50 food vouchers to people who would otherwise have gone hungry.

To try and raise funds to fill this gap we are turning our hands (somewhat nervously!) to running an Online Summer 2020 Collection.  If you would like to donate to this appeal, then you can:

To donate £1, text ROAR01 to 70201

To donate £3, text ROAR01 to 70331

 Other methods of donating www.easydonate.org/ROAR01

Thank You

Eating With The Havant Lions!

Havant Lions are probably best known for taking Santa out & about every Christmas. Funds raised then are now being used to support local people in need.

 

The COVID-19 crisis has left many Havant households in dire straits.  While the government is making money available to support people during the crisis there is inevitably a delay in getting cash into peoples’ hands.  This can mean that in the short-term people don’t even have the money to buy basic foodstuffs.  Havant Lions have allocated an initial £2,000 to help to alleviate this misery locally.  The funds have been converted into £50 food vouchers which are being routed via Social Services and Citizens Advice to make sure the vouchers go to the people with the most need in the area.  With over £1,800 already given out the vouchers are obviously filling a pressing need.

 

 

**We are looking for New Lions**

 

“Havant Lions always welcome applications from people who are interested in serving their community while having a good time doing it! Normally we would invite anyone interested to join us at the Brookfield Hotel to get a better idea of what the club does.  However, at the moment we are limited to online meetings so simply email us on membership@havantlions.org.uk and we’ll be happy to get back to you with more information about the Club and the Lions organisation in general”
