Helping Hayling Take Care Of COVID

With the current COVID -19 crisis the need to help is obviously greater than ever.

We are now urgently fundraising to support the work of groups and organisations on the Island who are helping the most vulnerable amongst us.

To start the Hayling COVID-19 fundraising Hayling Lions have today donated £1,000 to the fund. As always 100% of every donation will be for the people of Hayling.

Hopefully this crisis will be short lived and as it will not be possible to return any remaining monies these will be transferred to the Lions shop account allowing us to continue our usual work on Hayling once life returns to normal.
We can assure you we will endeavour to use your money wisely and for the good of others.

What Can You Do?

We Serve

We are the largest service based organisation in the world with with over 1 million members in almost 50,000 clubs worldwide and a history over 100 years. 

On Hayling Island, we raise funds to help people on the island who need us. 

Where there's a need - there's a Lion and we have Lions on Hayling Island. 

What We Do

We're behind the various annual events on the island, such as:

  • The Santa Sleigh at Christmas
  • Mengham Christmas Evening
  • Donkey Derby
  • Teddy Bears Picnic

We also help individuals in need on the Island, such as:

  • We paid for lunches to be delivered to children on the island whose parents struggle to provide them with lunch on the holidays
  • We bought a washing machine for an elderly lady who had to wash her clothes in the bath tub
  • We bought a budgie for a lonely lady on the island who just wanted some company

How You Can Help

We always need help and there's lots that you can do to help us help those on the Hayling Island live life a little more easily - for instance you could

  • Spread the word about us on social media or just by telling people about us
  • You could support our shop - either by helping out, or donating items for sale or popping in to buy something from us. Every penny raised from the shop helps people in need on Hayling Island.
  • You could become a silent member - all of our donations go straight to the needy. Our administrative costs are all paid by membership fees - so just paying £10/month to be a member helps us do our work
  • You could be an active member - we meet every 2nd Thursday at the British Legion and you are more than welcome. We always need people at events and with fundraising and helping us to help worthy causes on the Island - so please consider joining us.
