We are a local group of men and women who meet up once a month and combine our skills, time and energy to raise money for our local community and our International organisation. We celebrated our 40th birthday in 2012 – and still have at least one of the inaugural members.
We raise money in a variety of ways
- Fun casino evenings – enabling clubs/groups to raise funds for themselves or by running a casino evening for a party and raising funds for our club to use on worthy causes.
- Collections at the annual carnival/bonfire night/Christmas light switch on – in conjunction with Newquay Towan Blystra Lions.
- Boxing Night held annually.
- Santa’s Grotto.
- Town Walk – inviting clubs/groups to organise sponsorship for themselves.
We help groups and individuals in the community.
Any group or individual can approach the Lions for financial or other help at anytime. We have helped in many ways…
- Helping those in need by taking them shopping
- Taking groups of people to clubs/events/shopping, who would be unable to do so if this facility was not available
- Individuals who need help with an unexpected bill for reasons beyond their control
- Helping individuals who need equipment that would improve their life, but is unavailable from any other source
This is just a snapshot of what we have done. We are always willing to listen to anyone’s needs and if we can help, we will.
