Welfare In Our Community

The Welfare Committee of Yateley Lions meet monthly to discuss any approaches made to the Club regarding help needed in the community, whether this be manpower or financial.

Should you wish to apply for a grant from Yateley Lions, we can be contacted by post at The Council Offices address on our home page or by e-mail at welfare@yateleylions.co.uk
We don’t ask you fill out any forms, just advise us of the help required with an idea of any costs and some contact details. We can then request further information should we require it. There is normally a two-month response time, although any urgent requests will be dealt with more quickly.

The Lions run the “Community Store” based in Fleet, and several Yateley members are involved each week making deliveries of furniture to those in need.
In recent years we have been able to help various local young people and their families with financial help towards medical treatments and subsequent physiotherapy costs. We have supported several Wheelchair Awareness courses that have been run in local schools and frequently help those schools with their needs.

We are involved with Message-In-A-Bottle (MIAB) which is a simple idea designed to encourage people with a health problem to keep their personal and medical details on a standard form and in a common location ie - THE FRIDGE. All the Emergency Services are aware of this scheme should an emergency situation arise. To request some MIAB, please e-mail your details and number required to: enquiries@yateleylions.co.uk



We collect disused spectacles for Specktrek. Chichester Lions sort the glasses then forward them to Medico France in Le Havre for grading and then sending on to various destinations abroad.

 

 

Funfest is an annual day of fun that is organised and run jointly by the local Lions Clubs and held in Yateley which is primarily for those with handicaps and their carers. Further information can be found at https://www.lions-funfest.org.uk/index.html

 

 

We have helped Yateley Town Council with the new Pond Dipping Platform, a new bench and bins on Yateley Green.
