Can We Help You?
The Worthing Lions Welfare Committee meets monthly to discuss and research the merits of applications to Worthing Lions Club for funding, and then bring their proposals to the business meeting for voting.
The Committee consists of the chairman, and 4-6 members who have a wide cross section of experience and expertise from their working and private lives, so bringing a balanced view to the matters discussed.
Applications for funding come via Lion members, visitors to our Charity Shop, letters to Worthing Lions, and referral forms. They may be for individuals, groups, or other charity projects. We do try to help people within the Worthing area. If outside of our local area the referral may go to the relevant Lions Club.
The Chairman looks at the initial requests for funding, and if necessary telephones or visits to obtain further information to help in the decision process.
We advise all successful applicants and our help can be in the form of a cheque, pledge, or in kind e.g. providing materials for projects or sourcing items required.
