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.
For the second winter in a row the Somerset Levels have been devastated and the Lions Clubs of 105SW together with funs from our Multiple District Emergency Fund and other Lions Districts in the UK raised £ 47,000 towards alleviating the hardship suffered by many families. The distribution of the funds was in liaison with the Somerset Community Foundation who were able to identify those needing urgent help. Dehumidifiers, dryers, white goods, furniture, floor tiles, decorating materials are just a few of the purchases made
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.
Donations over the past year have been to Children's Hospice South West, Cheddar Scouts, Shipham Scouts, Cheddar Guides, Danzatec, pupils going on Operation Walacea, Lions Brass 4 Youth Band, Cheddar Valley Music Club as well as the Flood Appeal, and our other Lions Charities. We have also provided white goods, carpet, school uniform and specialist equipment for a local child.
Help us to continue our work in the Community by supporting any event we hold.
