Fund Raising

The activities detailed below are only a small example of what we do to produce our income that letís us support the individuals, charities and organisations we help. These are not the only means we use to raise funds.

Lions, unlike many other charities, use none of the cash given to us for administration. The costs of running the club are met entirely by the members own subscriptions, so you can be sure that when you donate £1 to a Lions club, that entire £1 will be used for the benefit of others less well off than yourself.

We always carefully monitor the causes we support; in some cases offering a conditional pledge thus ensuring all monies achieve our objectives.

Our fund raising activities include:

 

Christmas Sleigh Collection

Apart from the community service from the sleigh, it is our biggest annual fund raiser and in 2018 we were delighted to have achieved a new record collection of £8,724.40I

Over the 11 days of collections, the response this year from young and old was amazing, Santa and his sleigh pulled by matching Essex Ford sign written tow car proved very popular.

The volunteers manning the sleigh have great fun bringing annual Christmas joy to the streets of Billericay. One lady said she had lived in Billericay for 51 years and waited in anticipation everyone of those years for the Billericay Lions sleigh.

This fantastic collection will help us support local charities and good causes in 2019.


 

Billericay Beer Festival

A successful 8th Billericay Beer Festival was held at the end of June in 2018 at a new venue, Hannakins Farm Community Centre. Lions would like to thank all family and friends who helped to make the event a success and we mustn't forget all the sponsors, without them we wouldn't be able to hold the event.

Please pencil in 28-30 June 2019 for our 9th Billericay Beer Festival. See billericaybeerfestival.co.uk for further details as they become available.

Quizzes

Regular general knowledge charity quizzes are organised during the year.  

Food Taste Nights

Following on from our last seven years' very successful food taste nights combined with a quiz, Billericay Lions held another sell out Taste of Scandinavia evening in  March 2018.

These taste quizzes involve a number of taste courses of delicious foreign food interspersed with appropriately themed quiz questions. Watch this space for news of our next Taste of Quiz to be held in March 2019.

Barn Dances

Our next Barn Dance is being held on 23rd February 2019 at  the Cannon Roche. This event is an American type supper where you bring and share food. We have an excellent caller who makes the dances very easy and enjoyable.
