Battle Lions Centenary Grant Fund

LCI 100 LogoIn celebration of 100 years of the founding of Lions, who have since become one of the largest service organisations in the world, Battle and Villages Lions Club have opened more readily accessible special charity fund, in addition to their fund covering larger items of giving, particularly aimed at youth, youth organisations and youth organised projects within the area of Rother District and adjacent areas that they cover, known as the "BATTLE LIONS CENTENARY GRANT FUND," and have started this with an initial sum of £5,000 (five thousand pounds).

The aim of the fund is to provide rapidly and easily accessible grant funds in individual sums up to £500 in any one instance, to individual members of the public, local groups and organisations applying directly to them, for the benefit of local causes and community projects in the area covered by the Club and organised by or for youth and associated with youth.

Money will be made available to applicants immediately, subject to vetting, approval and checking by the Battle and Villages Lions Club, of information to be provided by the applicant on the grant application form (which can be found on their website). Any applicant will be required to allow the Club to publicise any grant for PR purposes.

Their President, Lion Rod Eldridge, states that “their purpose is not only to celebrate 100 years of Lionism, but to do so in a manner which will be a benefit to the local area, whose residents have so enthusiastically supported them over the years.” He states that “whilst it is hoped to raise the Lions Club profile, of greater importance is to plough locally raised funds back into the community in a way which will have a long term benefit to it.”

So come on scouters, guiders, youth and school groups, take advantage of this chance to improve your facilities or to enable you to move forward one of those projects you wanted to do but were short of funds, and get the application form below.
