Our Club responds to the needs of our local community. We receive requests from groups, local organisations or individuals to help them either to achieve a worthwhile project, or assist them in times of hardship or disability.

We have funds available. 

 Please contact us if you need our help.

It may be in the form of a cash donation to help a local charity or service organisation purchase some vital equipment. For example, a specialised bed for a hospice or kit for a local youth group. The Club's experience in organising and manning events is also called on by local groups and organisations to assist them in their own fundraising or charitable functions. For example, we regularly provided marshals for the New Forest Marathon and the Christchurch Christmas Lights "switch on"

Whilst the prime objective of Christchurch Lions is help within our local community, being part of a world-wide service organisation provides the Club with the opportunity to respond to international needs. We support Lions International initiatives in fields of Sight Conservation through the funding of Eye Camps in SE Asia and India, and the funding of fresh water well installations in Africa. The international coverage of 44,500 Lions clubs ensures a local presence to oversee the proper use of all funding.

Serving the community is one of the reasons that people become Lions, putting something back into the local community and making a difference to someone's life is immensely satisfying.

Within the Club, a Community Services Committee vets all applications before submission to the Club for approval.
