The details for applications for our 2020-2021 awards will be announced in September on our website and on our facbook page Tynedale Lions Club

Tynedale Lions have set up a bursary scheme to highlight, celebrate and reward the exceptional achievements of young people that, more often than not, go unseen and even unrewarded. We are looking for young people from Tynedale who “aspire to excellence” and deserve to be recognised for their hard work and/or exceptional achievement.

We have committed £2,000, split into four £500 bursaries for each of the following categories: Sport, Creative Arts & Music, Science and Humanities. It is intended that bursaries be applied to further the personal development of the young person.
