Supporters, Giving, Sponsorship, Advertising & Charity
There are a number of ways that the community supports the work that we undertake. The First of these is through membership of the 200 club which supplements the main fund raising events. The Second is through the Lions giving website. The Third is through direct sponsorship of the events and the Fourth is through businesses taking advertising for our many fund raising events. The Club has CIO status and the Charity Commission Reference Number is 1179721.
East Grinstead & District Lions - 200 Club
The 200 Club - is a group of up to 200 individuals, members of the lions, friends, family and other members of the public, who generously provide financial support to the clubs community service needs.

The application forms and constitution refer to this data and the rights of the individual under the Data Protection Act to access or modify the data at any time. The 200 Club helps to supplement the other funds raised by the Lions Club each year at major events so that all funds go to charitable causes.

With the arrival of Coronavirus we have had to adjust the location and process by which the draws take place. One was to have been done at May Fair but sadly we were unable to run it this year. So we took the draw to one of our Lions homes and keeping the required distance the pictures show the draw being undertaken. We then needed to do the same for the July and October draws.
Thanks to the members of the 200 Club who continue to contribute, we are able to donate specific sums to special causes.The latest in 2020 is £1000 to the Air Ambulance Service that provides emergency response in this area.
