Harpenden Lions Club Life Skills Programme began in 1991 helping the education of young people in the Harpenden and surrounding areas. It helps provide them with skills needed to manage their lives and take their place as responsible members of society.
Annual income grew from £3,000 in the early years to more than £17,000 per annum recently. Part of the funding is raised through the Harpenden Lions Highland Gathering and other Lions events but the bulk comes from charitable trusts, businesses and local people whose loyal and consistent support are greatly valued.
Harpenden Lions Club has raised and donated £230,000 to support local mainstream, special needs, and nursery schools, and children’s centres.
