BROWN BURSARY SCHEME.
Following the receipt of a generous bequest from the late Robert E. Brown’s estate, the Lions of Jersey are establishing an annual bursary of up to £9,000. We invite groups of young people, from schools, youth clubs and other similar organisa-tions to compete for the bursary by telling us how they would spend charitable money for the good of the community.
EXAMPLES OF LIONS PROJECTS.
WINDSOR LIONS CLUB
CHAMPNEY HALL in Horton. Windsor Lions Club made a grant of £1,000 to establish an internet connection that could be used to show village residents of all ages how to use computers, while providing a hub in cases of emergency such as recent flooding.
LIONS CLUB OF JERSEY
£500 awarded to Le Squez Youth Centre to fund a supper for Senior Citizens at their Youth Centre premises. Members did all the purchasing and preparing/cooking of foodstuffs, waited at tables and provided entertainment during the evening.
