Lions Club of Bridgend

Some of our Donations

 

The substantial part of funds raised by Bridgend Lions Club goes back to the community by supporting a myriad of local causes, some example of which are set out below.

However, we are proud that as part of Lions Clubs International, the world’s largest volunteer service club, we are able to support specific international projects designed to improve the lives and relieve the suffering of millions worldwide as well - use the menu bar above for International to see some of our International Projects.
