Requests received regularly include applications for individual financial help to take part in overseas explorations or charitable ventures. In the last year Bognor Lions have assisted with the cost of over fifteen individual young people who have helped on projects varying from Tall Ship races to setting up Schools and Hospitals in the jungles of the third world.

Before giving a grant the validity of each application is checked. The Applicant will be expected to show that they are doing something towards raising cash for themselves and that the project is being run by an accredited organisation.

Bognor Lions also have a good working relationship with local youth groups. Including Scouts, Guides, Youth Clubs and local Youth Charities.

This year Bognor Lions funded a Basic Food Hygiene course, which was administered by a local outreach charity, which targeted young people with educational or social needs and allowed them to take the course free of charge. For most this could be the first creditable achievement they have received. Also it is a valid qualification when looking for work in the food industry.

Another Bognor Lions project was to pay for the printing of small information cards containing helpful contacts for young people with regard to problems concerning Health, Drugs and Housing. (These were given out by qualified Youth Outreach Workers.)

Within the district there is the opportunity for young people to enter competitions ranging from Football to Designing a Peace Poster.

Every October we hold a Swimathon, which attracts between 20 and 25 youth teams, who swim to raise money for their own clubs and charities, as well as the Lions Club. In 2003 this raised over £5000 for local Schools and Clubs. Every penny collected goes to the causes for which it is raised. No administration or running costs are taken out.

If you would like to be considered for a grant please email us, giving brief details, a contact phone number, and your postal address.
