Who Are Lions?

Billericay Lions is probably best known for our annual Christmas Sleigh, our Saturday Morning Bookstall and now for the annual Billericay Beer Festival.

But there is much more to us than that. We are part of Lions Clubs International, comprising 1.4 million men and women in 206 countries worldwide who get together to help those less fortunate than themselves and have fun at the same time.

What do we do?

Like many service clubs, we have a number of varied fundraising activities. Billericay Lions has raised over £300,000 in the last 30 years for worthy causes. In addition to the Christmas Sleigh and Annual Beer Festival, we hold indoor and outdoor Musical events, Quiz Nights, "Taste of..." evenings, Easter Hamper Raffles, postal quizzes and anything else considered appropriate.

In addition to fundraising, we also have a “hands on" approach. This may mean pushing a wheelchair along the seafront, digging a garden, helping to decorate an elderly person's bathroom etc. Every 2 years there is an international swimming gala for people with disabilities. We also provide a Senior Citizens' Concert each year and transport arthritis sufferers to a local club.

The Caring Side

Funds raised have been distributed to many charities and individuals. For a long list, please see our donations page. Locally, St Luke's Hospice, Little Havens, Hamelin House, Scouts, Guides, Schools, elderly and disabled groups have benefited.

We also support national charities, including Marie Curie, Macmillan Cancer Care, the Royal British Legion, St Dunstan's, British Heart Foundation and the Special Olympics.

Some of the funds are donated to help Lions International projects such as providing cataract operations to cure preventable blindness, clean water wells in Africa and to emergency disaster relief recently in Japan, New Zealand, Australia and Haiti.

We also support youth projects, such as Young Leaders in Service, the Peace Poster competition and the Young Ambassador of the Year competition.

The Social Side

In addition to our Fundraising and Community Service, we organise regular social events such as guided walks, beer festival visits, trips to Twickenham, Wembley, theatre trips, quiz and games nights, boat trips and visits to other Lions Clubs locally and internationally.

What We Offer

We offer our members the satisfaction of helping others and the chance to make new friends and have a lot of fun.

Priorities

We recognise that our Members' families and work come before the needs of the Lions Club.
