Fundraising Committee

“We make a living by what we get, but we make a life by what we give” Winston Churchill

What We Do

We find creative ways “to pick a pocket or two”.

The Bridgnorth Lions raise funds which are then distributed to various groups and individuals within the local community. We do this by organising a variety of events throughout the year and relying on the goodwill of the community, businesses, and visitors to support us.

Who We Are

The current 2023/24 committee has nine members. Nick Crowe as Chair with Matt Mott, Richard Wills, Stephen Evenett, Martin Allen, Chris Luty, Richard Stilwell, John Radford; and last but not least, Champion Charity Collector, George Lee.

How We Do It & Looking Forward

How We Do It

The Bridgnorth Lions year runs from July to June, and throughout, we organise a variety of different initiatives, encouraging the local community to support our good causes. Many events are established, and well loved by residents, having run for many years. Things coming up include……

  • A Summer/Autumn Draw to be drawn on 24th November. So be on the lookout! This year has a bumper set of prizes.
  • A Bottle and Straw Draw on the Bridgnorth Lions Stand at the Bridgnorth Lights Switch On (24th Nov).
  • Christmas Hampers at various local outlets
  • Easter Hampers
  • The Bridgnorth Walk & Marathon, organised by a stand-alone sub-committee, taking place on Early May Bank Holiday
  • The Duck Race a great fun event, held on Bridgnorth Carnival Sunday on the river in Low Town
  • Plus, bucket rattling and donation pots throughout the year

Looking Forward

It’s the drive and commitment of the Fundraising Committee Members and the wider Bridgnorth Lions that generate some great ideas (plus some not so great!). So, looking forward we are developing some brand-new events. Make sure you keep a look out around town to see what’s coming up, like ……

  • An evening with Will Farmer (BBC Antiques Roadshow)
  • Bed Push Race
  • Pancake Race
  • Space Hopper Racing
  • Pogo stick Racing
  • Remember the 70’s/80’s Night
  • Virtual Treasure Hunt
  • Lions Comedy Club Evening
  • Cheese Rolling

The list grows but we would love to hear your suggestions –they can’t be any worse than ours!
