About Lion Projects

A variety of projects we support as Lions, both locally & globally

MESSAGE IN A BOTTLE

LOCAL project

WHO DOES IT HELP?
  • Its a simple idea designed to encourage people to keep their basic personal and medical details on a standard form and in a common location – the fridge!
  • It saves the Emergency Services valuable time if they need to enter a property in an emergency situation and  identifies if you have special medication or allergies. 
  • It is focused on the more vulnerable people in a community.

HOW MUCH DOES IT COST?
  • When ordering one bottle the scheme is free to the public and is funded by Woking Lions Club.

PROJECT WENCASLAS

LOCAL & SURROUNDING AREAS project
  • Woking Lions and Citizens Advice work together to provide small grants which are available to individuals who meet the criteria. 
  • We can also help you find a cheaper supplier by giving us a few details about your current energy provider,
 
WHO DOES IT HELP?
  • The project supports people locally & in surrounding areas who are struggling to pay their fuel bills and have possibly built up debt with their energy supplier. 

WHO DONATES?
  • Money is collected from people who are awarded the Government's Winter Fuel Allowance.

CHRISTMAS APPEAL

LOCAL PROJECT

Christmas Day provides challenges for people in our community.

SURREY AIR AMBULANCE

LOCAL & GLOBAL PROJECT

Using our fundraiser EGGSTRAVAGANZA where local businesses sell tickets to win a large chocolate prize, we raise funds to closely support Kent, Surrey and Sussex Air Ambulance Trust (KSSAA). Monies raised go towards the cost of cutting edge technology. 

LIONS RECYCLE FOR SIGHT

GLOBAL PROJECT

Changing lives, one pair at a time. In any drawer, one can find a pair of spectacles that are no longer being used. That same pair of spectacles can change another person's life.

WHO DOES IT HELP?

Throughout the year, Lions collect used spectacles and deliver them to regional Lions Eyeglass Recycling Centres. They clean, sort by prescription strength and package the glasses. Most of the recycled glasses are distributed to people in need in developing countries where they will have the greatest impact. 

HOW CAN YOU HELP?

By donating glasses to help change someone's life. To do so,  drop your old spectacles in our sponsored Lions Collection Boxes.

They are located here;

BROOKWOOD SAINSBURYS, WOKING BAYFIELDS, WOKING HOSPICE, WOKING FUNERAL SERVICE, OPTICIANS WEST BYFLEET, WEYBRIDGE WAITROSE, HOME BEECH HOUSE ON MOUNT HERMAN ROAD
