Charitable Donations

We make regular charitable donations from the money raised by our fundraising events. Most donations go to local charities with some also to Lions Clubs International charitable causes. Recent examples are:

4th Billericay Scouts

We matched initial funding to help cover the cost of their green energy project to install solar panels at their meeting hall which is also used by pre-school, older persons and a line dancing club.

Billericay Street Pastors

We paid for a gazebo to help launch this new community based service in the high street in their inaugural year. We then subsequently funded the provision of warm Hi-vis jackets for the pastors for the winter months and inflatable mattresses and bedding for temporary use in their hub in the High Street.

Essex Cardiothoracic Centre

We purchased a starter printing kit allowing this unit to provide heart patients with customised plastic ID cards carrying details of their condition and any implantable devices. This facilitated a changeover from a previous tedious and complicated paper based ID system.

Billericay Cricket Club

We funded two coaching courses to enable senior team members to qualify as coaches for the Colts team

Billericay Twins Club

Funding to pay for new baby play-mats for this well established local group, with over 100 member families, who provide support and advice to families with twins, triplets or more.

Essex Savers

Support with publicity material at the setting up of a local information point in Billericay library for this financial co-operative that provides ethical banking services and low cost loans to needy people funded by secure investments from community minded savers.

Samaritans Purse Shoe Box appeal

A donation to cover postage costs in sending Christmas gifts packed in shoe boxes by a local church group and Quilters school to underprivileged children in 3rd world countries.

Medical school grant

We match funded a medical school grant to a local student in her final year at the London School of Medicine to help pay the tuition fees for a medical elective learning and practising medicine in Sri Lanka as part of her training.

Neighbourhood Watch

Each year we pay for the cost of the emergency telephone line used by the Billericay branch of neighbourhood watch

Lions Clubs International support for Blind Veterans UK

We made a donation to a Lions International fund that supports ex-Service personnel who have suffered from sight impairment on active duty.
