Community Services

The Community Services group is the primary mechanism for determining the fair distribution of the Alton Lions Club aid to local charities, agencies, and individuals, deserving causes and to the wider Lions national and international service programmes. The aid provided includes both the physical and financial resources of the club and covers organising the provision of support services for specific local requirements. The Community Service group maintains contact with appropriate local agencies, charitable organisations and from individuals in need to manage requests for support and determine the appropriate action to be taken by the club. In addition the group may under certain circumstances request the Fund Raising group to initiate addition activities to raise funds for a specific need.
