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

Thanks to grants received from Billericay Town Council and Basildon Borough Council plus a generous donation from the Co-op Community Fund we were able to build a brand new Sleigh for our 2017 Christmas collection.

For 10 nights the sleigh went round many of the housing areas in Billericay. We also had permission to collect at the local Waitrose and Tesco supermarkets and in the High Street car park behind Iceland as well.

As always the reception from the public was wonderful. The excitement of the children was as intense as ever.

In 2017, thanks in part to the good weather but mainly due to the generosity of the people of Billericay, the total collected was a record £8,682.93 which will be used in our charity work throughout the local community. Thank you to everyone who made a donation.

Thank you also to all the members and their friends and family, who gave their support to come out, helping us to continue this important work.

Billericay Beer Festival

Following the cancellation of the 2017 Billericay Beer Festival due to overrunning  building work at Billericay Town Football Club, a successful 8th Billericay Beer Festival was held in 2018 at a new venue, Hannakins Farm Community Centre.

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.
