Witney Lions Club - 'Dream Scheme'

Dream Scheme 2018

Following the successful launch of Witney Lions Dream Scheme in January 2017 eight local groups shared 3,000 to help their Dreams come true. The Scheme was funded through the generous donations of the local community during the Christmas float collections.  

The 2018 Dream Scheme Awards were given to the following local clubs on 26th February.

ARCH Assisted Reading for Children - to purchase books to help Witney primary school aged children to improve their reading

Witney Day Centre - put towards setting up a new Witney Day Centre for the elderly

ATC Air Training Corps - to purchase a new laptop to allow cadets to take exams whilst in squadron

Witney Under 10s Rugby Club - to help send the under 10 team on tour to Bedfordshire for a weekend and play a junior Wasps team.
