Yeo Valley Lions Club Fundraising and Charity Projects

YV Lions Minibus;

The Yeo Valley Lions minibus is well known around the local villages as it takes people on regular shopping trips and social outings. It is out and about on most days. The 16seater is used by number of organisation’s, such as Parkinson’s Society, Yatton Rugby Club, Claverham Cricket Club and Yatton Ladies Hockey Team, as well as the Local Scouts and Guides and local schools. We purchased and fitted out a New VW Crafter Mini Bus in 2012.

Special Needs Playground at Kingston Seymour;

The playground tucked away in Kingston Seymour that Yeo Valley Lions Club constructed and maintain. It is much used by the local families who have children with special needs and by organisations for those who have.  Its facilities include specially designed playground equipment that allows a carer to accompany a child on a swing or down a slide. It also has sandpits and rocking toys and plenty of room to run around and let off steam in a secure and safe environment. A water fall and a movement sensitive water feature make a calming corner of the garden. There are picnic tables and a rain shelter and lots of bikes and tricycles have been donated by local people to add to the fun

The Claverham Beer Festival;

A system that enables people to put details of Medical Conditions and Next of Kin into a plastic container that is then put into the Fridge. It is a fact that most Fridges will survive a Fire and Emergency Services and Doctors will look for "The Message in a Bottle" to help them if needed.

Wake/ Worlock Trust;

In 1994 Mrs F M T Worlock, nee Wake of the Wakedean Furniture Factory, bequeathed to the YV Lions Club 3 properties divided into 6 flats with a wish that they should be used to house local elderly people. These properties are held in the Wake/Worlock Trust and after maintaining and improving the properties any surplus funds are used to enhance the quality of life for elderly residents in the area. In addition a large contribution was made to the rebuilding of the Library and the meeting room in the Library is known as the Wake/Worlock Room.

The flats are all occupied currently but if anyone is interested in being considered for a tenancy in the future they may contact Geoff Bland on 01934 832118
