Fund Raising

We cannot carry out our service activities without raising funds. We do this in a number of ways as can be seen below. Every penny we raise goes to charitable activities as we fund our administration expenses from our own pockets.

A Race Night With a Difference

Fancy something a bit different for your fund raiser or social event or party? We can run our Race Night with a Difference for you. For a reasonable donation (reduced rate for charities) we can provide the racetrack, the horses, the Tote and an MC for the night. All you have to provide is the venue and the punters. Contact Simon on 07792 047546 or to book this fantastic event.

A recent event run for the local Marie Curie Fundraising group raised over £1,300 and a Race Night at the Banbury Club raised over £1,100 to be split between SIFA Fireside (a homeless centre) and water filtration units for the Nepal earthquake disaster. The picture below shows the 'Jerry Cans' which can turn the dirtiest of water into clean water for drinking.

ASDA Collections and Awareness events

Thank you ASDA for allowing us to collect over £1100 for good causes during the last year.

Christmas Collections

For the last 35 years or so Marston Green & District Lions have taken Santa round the streets of Chelmsley Wood and Marston Green bringing a smile to many a child's (and adult's) face and raising much needed funds that enable us to serve.
