Is a fundamental part of our activities! As a
volunteer organisation we aim to meet the needs of local communities and
the world and without fund raising we cannot get that job done.
Our motto is ‘We Serve’
We are proud to help at the heart of the
local community with every penny collected going direct to good causes.
Not one penny is spent on administration. Here are some of the people we
have supported in the last 24 months.

Some help involves time rather than money. We
have a regular commitment to provide weekly assistance to a local social
club for senior citizens, and two of our members spend time helping
local school children with an engineering development programme.
We run an active programme of social events
for the benefit of members, their families and friends. Apart from an
annual dinner dance, these have included quiz and games nights, rambles,
Sunday lunches and evening meals, theatre trips, wine and cheese
evenings, sporting events etc.
What Commitment is required?
Being in a Lions club can be a busy pastime but, with the activities shared between the members, it is good fun and isn’t too onerous. Club
meetings are once a fortnight and there are sub committees as well to organise
different aspects of the club’s activities.
