Dream Scheme

Fantastic NEWS – we have re-launched the Witney Lions Dream Scheme for 2022.

This has only been possible from the generous donations Santa & Rudolph received during December’s static float collections. More about the Dream Scheme


In order to achieve the distribution of funds to worthy local causes, Witney Lions Club (CIO) raises money throughout the year by participating in events both large and small. More about Fund Raising


Witney Lions Club (CIO) is focused on local fund-raising and support, and along with other UK Lions Clubs we also contribute funds to Lions Club International’s worldwide efforts to serve community needs. More about Welfare
