Lions raise funds in many different ways in order that local good causes and charities can be supported. Here are a few ways in which the Witney Lions Club (CIO) raises money.

Witney Carnival

You will find us playing a key role in helping organise the Witney Carnival from which we receive a percentage of the overall profit. We also sell raffle tickets on behalf of the Carnival and run both a Pig Roast and Beer Tent on the day.

Christmas Sleigh

Each December we normally organise house to house collections with Father Christmas and Rudolph, but as a result of Covid we are only doing static sites this year. You will see us in key sites in Witney and the surrounding area during December, keep an eye on the Club Noticeboard for updates on where we will be.

Gazebo Hire

We have two 3m x 3m Gazebos for hire. Popular with various groups and organisations holding events, we deliver erect and take down the Gazebo(s) for you.

Horse Racing Evenings

We help other clubs & groups raise funds for their needs by supporting them in running a Horse Racing Event. Not real horses or tape-recorded races, but audience participation and the luck of the dice. As such it can be run in a medium size hall.

Collection Boxes

You might see one of our collection boxes in a Pub or Shop, why not drop a couple of coins in it and help us to help others.

Easter Egg Raffles

At various Pubs and other locations, large Easter Eggs are raffled in the lead up to Easter. A chocolate delight for the winner.
