Presently 25 members aged from 30s upwards, we are best known for our annual Christmas Sleigh street collection, our annual beer festival and our Saturday morning bookstall in the High Street.
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.
Please visit our donations page for a list of recent donations.
Some help involves time rather than money. We have a weekly commitment to assist a local seniors social club, distribute and collect Marie Curie boxes and provide volunteers for their street collection etc.
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.
