Fund Raising

If you are interested in taking part in any of the activities, please respond to the named individuals on the event specific pages or by using the "Contact Us" form from the main menu.

Christmas collections

Although hard work, these are a vital part of our fundraising which help to boost our ability to bring a little cheer to those in straitened circumstances over the festive season.

Basingstoke Lions Variety for Charity Season 2018

For some years The Lions Club of Basingstoke have been presenting entertainment at local venues as a major fundraiser to help good causes in the immediate vicinity and beyond. A large audience has been established over time reflecting the popularity of the type of light entertainment provided and the low price charged for a good night out. We have an interesting and varied programme of shows in 2018.  See below or our Events Calendar.

All shows are reasonably priced at £12 and there is a discount of £2 per show if you sign up for three or more for the new season.

We also have an annual Swimathon and 2 Quiz Nights each year. We are always looking for new events to develop and deliver, and this year we are also having a Soul music night, a Stage Hypnotist, a Dance Troupe, the Caerphilly Male Voice Choir and the Hampshire Constabulary Band. Variety is veritably the spice of life! They'll all be on the Events Calendar in due course if they are not there already.

All these events require manpower which is in short supply. However they are fun to organise and it is a meaningful use of time. Anyone wishing to help or even better wanting to join our organisation will always be most welcome.
