Everyone is invited to join us at Wokingham Town Hall to celebrate a good year for the Wokingham Lions Club. We have raised a great deal of money for local charities, increased our membership and had a lot of fun.

Monday 6 May: May Fayre 2019

Wednesday 12 June: Charity performance of Bronte at Wokingham Theatre

This play runs for six days at Wokingham Theatre, but thanks to their generosity all proceeds from the final dress rehearsal will be donated to our charity account.

The play is written by Polly Teale, and gives a fascinating insight to the personal lives of the Bronte sisters.

Constrained by their background and their sex, three girls grow up in an isolated parsonage on the Yorkshire moors with an overbearing father and a brother unable to cope with the weight of his family’s expectations. Against this backdrop, the Brontë sisters write novels and create powerful and passionate characters that have ensured their place in our literary history.

Heathcliffe, Cathy Earnshaw, Arthur Huntingdon and the first Mrs Rochester come to life as the sisters’ story unfolds. Brontë is a fascinating glimpse into the life, mind and works of this extraordinary family.

Tickets for the Wednesday performance will be available on this website from 1 April at £12.00 each

Every year Wokingham Lions Club help Marie Curie with their annual Great Daffodil Appeal.  This year was no exception, and over the two days we participated we collected over £1,000

Saturday 9 February: Gangsters & Molls Night

This was a great night out, themed on the 1930’s.  Everyone got into the spirit and dressed in the appropriate style.  Big thanks to everyone involved in organising it, especially Lyn, Jean and Candy who prepared over 100 meals!

As well as being a fun event, it raised over £2,300 for our charity account

Wednesday 20 December: Christmas Dinner

Our Christmas Dinner at Bearwood Golf Club was a fun evening with over 40 of our members, partners and friends. After a festive Christmas meal we enjoyed communal carol singing, followed by a very amusing rendition of the Twelve Days of Christmas customised by Lyn Baily to summarise Lions Club events.

1 – 7 December 2018: Can-Can Appeal

We ran our annual Can-Can appeal in December, where we collected food donations outside Sainsbury’s, Waitrose and Tesco supermarkets.  We collated the donations into more than 200 food parcels that we donated to numerous needy indiviuals and organisations in the locality.  This event is always well supported, and the recipients are extremely grateful for the bit of Christmas Cheers that we bring them.

We are a very friendly club, with members from Wokingham and the surrounding area. We work hard to support the local community and raise funds for local charities, and have fun doing it!
New members are very welcome, so if you would like to be part of it, please contact ustwitter
