Young Farmers Clubs and Young Farmers County Federations working together with Lions Clubs
Young Farmers Clubs (YFCs) can help Lions Clubs with organising and carrying out their community service and fundraising events. In return, Lions Clubs will offer support at key YFC events. This cooperation will provide a fantastic platform for your Lions Club to raise its profile within your community and an opportunity for both groups to grow membership by recruiting members from your area.
Lions Clubs members have a wealth of experience in planning and hosting events for the general public and would like to support and to receive support from YFC. This kind of event assistance could be used to help many clubs and YF county federations continue to stage and host fantastic occasions for Lions, YFC members and the general public.
Examples of how Lions Clubs members have already helped YFCs
Catering at an annual rally – cooking food and serving drinks
- Live musical accompaniment at a Christmas concert. A Lions Club member volunteered to play live music at the concert and a memorable evening was had by all.
- Car Parking and marshalling at Eccleshall YFC Shear & Beer event, which in 2019 raised over £10,000 for local worthwhile causes.
Other ideas and suggestions
Christmas charity fundraising (Lions with Santa).
Lions Clubs and YFCs can work together to help raise even more money for good causes in the community.
Bonfire and fireworks displays.
Lions Clubs could invite YFCs to volunteer alongside them at their event, could invite YFCs to attend the display as a Club trip, or a YFC could organise a community bonfire and display in partnership with the Lions Club.
