Kenilworth Lions Club has today launched a new scheme called “Pride of Lions Community Grants”, under which all future funding requests from local individuals and organisations will be accepted for consideration and decision by Club members.
This follows on from the successful Dream Scheme initiative completed earlier in the year, which saw over £18,000 of grants given out to a wide range of local projects. It will also replace other current ad-hoc methods by which funding requests are received by the Lions. In total, Kenilworth Lions awarded grants of more than £50,000 in 2018/19.
Under the new scheme, grant applications will be accepted throughout the year, with decisions made at monthly Club meetings.
Lion president Graham Pemberton said: “We’ve named this new scheme in recognition of the pride we have in ourselves as a Club, and in the wonderful local community of Kenilworth whom we serve.”
Full details of the new scheme are here on the Kenilworth Lions website at kenilworthlionsclub.co.uk/pride-of-lions-community grants. Grant applications can be made online via the website, or by downloading and returning an application form. Forms can also be collected from the Lions’ Furniture Store in Farmer Ward Road on Saturday mornings, or from the Kenilworth Centre in Abbey End Car Park.
