The first club in the UK was formed in 1950 and the organisation has rapidly expanded to more than 900 clubs in Britain and Ireland today.

The Lions Club of Ammanford was formed in 1970 and presently comprises 12 people, 6 men and 6 women, all of whom are volunteers.

Members come from all walks of life and across a large age range - there is no maximum age, and members can join at age 18.

What do Ammanford Lions do?

The principal aim of Lions Clubs is to provide help and funds to those in need, whilst enjoying the satisfaction, fellowship and fun that can be derived from taking part. Lions Clubs are dedicated to improving the quality of life for those less fortunate people in our community.

The Lions Club of Ammanford provides direct service to our community by organising regular Litter Picks but our main activity is  raising funds for Charitable Purposes.For further details of some of our events please see our Club Projects page


Our members also participate in various direct service activities and enjoy a social calendar which includes dinners, a quiz night and other social occasions where the principal aim is to have fun and enjoy ourselves.
