Lions Club of Richmond puts the Focus on Youth Education

Youth Education Fund established in partnership with The Wyatt Trust

The Lions Club of Richmond, well known for its large Op-Shop operation in Camden Park, is keen to support youth education initiatives in Western Adelaide by establishing a partnership with The Wyatt Trust.

The two organisations have a long history of supporting those in need with the Lions Club of Richmond generating and distributing nearly $150,000 a year in support of good causes and The Wyatt Trust, currently celebrating its 130th year of operation, working with more than 70 partner groups in supporting education, employment, housing and financial assistance initiatives.

Lions Club representative, David Frith says, “The team at the Lions Club of Richmond does a fantastic job in raising funds through our Op Shop operations to support people in need and we are so pleased to be working with The Wyatt Trust to make sure the funds get to where they are needed. The focus on youth education fits perfectly with our desire to make our community stronger.”

“We’re thrilled to be working with the Lions Club of Richmond through this partnership,” said Paul Madden, Chief Executive of The Wyatt Trust. “The benefits of grant makers working together in local communities can’t be overstated, and it’s a terrific example of funders collaborating to increase their impact in a particular area.”

Over the next 12 months, the partnership will deliver funding to support eligible young people in youth education projects through the City of West Torrens, City of Marion and City of Charles Sturt.
