The Witney Lions Dream Scheme was launched in January 2017. The Lions Dream Scheme is looking to support and inspire a number of local projects which are trying to make a real difference to the lives of people in our community. The Scheme is funded through the generous donations of the local community during our Christmas float collections. The Lions Dream Scheme for 2019-2020 will run from November 18th 2019 to January 24th 2020.
