Our Objectives

As a not-for-profit association our VISION is to raise money to assist underprivileged and disadvantaged young people. We provide opportunities through our Further Education Scholarships, Sports Grants, All Abilities Sports Programmes and Primary School Sports Camps. We acknowledge outstanding young people who significantly contribute to their chosen sports through our new initiative, the Spirit of the Game Award. The people assisted may be disadvantaged by finance, geography, physical or intellectual disability.

A secondary but important aim is to ensure that fund-raising events generate enjoyment and fellowship among members.

Our MISSION is to enhance the prospects of disadvantaged and disabled young people using sport and recreation to engage with them.

We raise money so that we can support disadvantaged and disabled young people pursue their dreams.

We also offer our support to many community groups and charities by volunteering at events such as the Aboriginal Rugby League Carnival, the Lismore Samson Fitness Challenge, the Lismore Lantern Parade and the Darrel Chapman Fun Run. We also co-ordinate Community Dinners at Our House in Lismore, a charitable foundation that provides accommodation to patients and their carers receiving treatment at the Lismore Base Hospital.

Since its inception in 2009, the Lord’s Taverners Northern NSW branch has raised and disbursed more than $700,000.00 across a wide range of programs.

Sponsorships, donations and assistance are welcomed from businesses and individuals who empathize with the Lord’s Taverners cause. Help us to give the young and disadvantaged a sporting chance.
