Tickhill & District Lions are a group of volunteers who raise money and giving our time to help good causes within our community of Tickhill, Wadworth, Rossington, Stainton, Harworth, Bircotes and Bawtry. We do so because we believe that those who live in a community are in the best position to know who needs help and why.
Examples of those we help locally include:
Local schools, community centres & youth organisations
Hospitals, hospices, specialist schools & care homes
The local elderly & infirm
Individuals in great personal need
Other charities, groups or individuals working to benefit our local community
We also raise money to help those in need outside of our community and around the world. When we do this we are very careful to ensure that the money we donate gets directly to the people who need it and we frequently choose to support projects through the Lions Club International Foundation. The LCIF, like all Lions organisations, funds its own administrative costs and so ensures that every penny donated is spent directly on the humanitarian project, often enlisting the help of Lions Clubs local to the area where help is needed.
Examples of where the money we raise has helped outside of our community and around the world include:
We’ve given money to disaster relief programmes
SightFirst - We’ve funded 110 eye camps which have helped thousands of people as part of a worldwide Lions project to combat preventable blindness
We’ve helped fund programmes to send UK professionals to volunteer in third world countries
We’ve helped fund international water aid programmes
