Welfare Outreach – Witney and beyond

West Oxfordshire is regarded as a prosperous area, nevertheless there are people who find themselves in need of assistance. The Witney Lions Club (CIO) Welfare Committee is responsible for considering requests for assistance and endeavours to help in all areas of the community. This is made possible by the work done by our Fund Raising Committee.

Apart from our annual Dreamscheme grants, since July 2022, we have been able to issue grants to support the following:

  • Decorating kitchen & lounge of elderly disabled individual – £400

  • Books for North Kidlington School  – £250

  • Christmas parcels for Witney Mental Health Team – £39 (plus donations by members)

  • 2 x Christmas food parcels for single parent families – £50 each

  • Christmas Present for a single parent child – £100

  • Thames Valley Air Ambulance – £60

  • Bedding and Kettle for a single parent family – donated by members

  • TV and Toaster for victim of domestic violence – donated by members

  • Disability Pushchair with water proof cover  – £329.94

  • Disability Pushchair with water proof cover – £302.99

  • Witney Food Bank – £500

None of this would be possible without the generous support of the people within West Oxfordshire, the club members and Friends of Lions thank you.

We feel that our efforts have made a significant contribution to many people in the fifty plus years that the club has been in existence.
