Cheddar Vale Lions Club has been serving the community of the Cheddar Valley for over forty years and endeavours to help not only those in need locally but also in times of crisis helps raise money for disasters in our own Country and also throughout the world. From the floods a few years ago which devastated Boscastle in Cornwall, parts of Gloucestershire and Worcestershire and even our own county of Somerset, the Lions were out with their buckets collecting to help the public with their immediate needs.
The Club is always looking for ways of helping the community, whether it is giving financial support towards youngsters doing voluntary work abroad, providing materials for decorating community halls,or providing wheelchair access to schools etc., never be afraid to ask, all requests are looked at individually and judged on merit. Throughout the year Cheddar Vale Lions can be seen out and about in their bright yellow tops, chatting with the locals and visitors at the events they organise. The Club is a registered charity and serves the villages and surrounding areas of Cheddar, Shipham, Axbridge, Wedmore, Lower Weare, Rooksbridge, Draycott, Rodney Stoke, Winscombe & Sidcot.
Some of our regular donations are to causes such as Motivation which supplies specially adapted wheelchairs to Third World Countries, the Multiple Sclerosis Therapy Centre, Children's Hospice South West along with the Jessie May Trust which is another terminally ill children's charity, Weston Hospice Care, The Stroke Association, Operation Walacea, Lions Brass 4 Youth and local youth groups.
