LUCTONIANS SPORTS CLUB CHARITY GROUP
Raising Funds For Good Causes

The aim of the Charity Group is to select the charities that Luctonians will support each year and to organise fund raising events.

Our chosen charities for last season, 2021/22 were

The CLD Trust
The CLD Trust supports and provides counselling to children, young people and their families, throughout Herefordshire, with issues surrounding mental health and emotional wellbeing.

West Mercia Search & Rescue
A charity entirely made up of Volunteers, WMSAR finds missing people, saves lives in floods and responds to emergencies alongside their partner agencies: Hereford & Worcester Fire and Rescue Service, Shropshire Fire and Rescue Service and West Mercia Police.

 Prostate Cancer UK
Long-time friends of Luctonians, the Herefordshire Branch of this Charity have, for many years provided a free testing service at the last home game of the season, to both members and the Lucs Community. They support both those diagnosed and their loved ones, whilst providing information to all on their website.  Apart from the provision of support, their ultimate aim is to eradicate prostate cancer as a killer of men of all ages.

Luctonians Sports Club
Not many people know this, but Luctonians Sports Club is, in part, a Registered Charity. This supports the Club in its provision of community engagement, both sporting and social.
