Lioness Clubs work in their communities voluntarily, with support from friends and family. They give help by donating time and financial resources where the need arises. The cost of administering the Clubs at all levels is covered by the members themselves. Every penny raised for charitable purposes is used to assist others and Lionesses keep accounts which are available to anyone wishing to examine them.
How do we raise funds?
Lioness Clubs raise funds in many different ways including:
Street Collections & Face Painting – Run charity stalls at Fetes and Galas
Quiz Nights & Santa’s Grottos – Car Boot Sales & Coffee Mornings
Dinners, Dances and Disco’s
