Primary interest
Funding and Fundraising

Reading Lions Club will be holding their next Lion’s Den community grant event on the 12 June 2019. Their aim is to reach out to small groups and charities in Reading and award grants for local community projects. They will be distributing grants of up to £750 each. If you are involved in a local community project in Reading or are a small local charity then this could be your opportunity to obtain one of the grants. There are three stages to the application process.

Stage one

Written applications to be submitted by post or email no later than 15 May 2019.

Stage two

Successful first stage applicants will be notified by email. You will then be asked to talk in more detail to a small group of Reading Lions on the evening of  12 June 2019. The event will be held at Royal Berkshire Conference Centre at the Madejski Stadium between 6.30 pm and 8.30 pm. Each group will be allocated a ten minute time slot. A maximum of 2 persons may attend to represent each group.

Stage three

Successful applicants will be notified by email and the grants will be distributed by 30 June 2019. Please also note that, if you are a winner, you will be expected to provide feedback to Reading Lions Club once the grant has been used.
