100 Years of Service!

As part of our organisations 100th Year of Service we are celebrating in many ways. As well as the Lion Treasure Trail we also sponsored the St Marychrurch Experience with flower Planters. 


Lions Everywhere! 

Over the summer we have been celebrating 100 years of Lions Clubs International with a campaign across the bay. Working together with Brixham Lions Club and Paignton Lions we have 100 lions around the bay with information leaflets on all three clubs. Along side the Lions we have been running a Lion Treasure Trail to keep the young ones amused over the summer.

100 Years of Lions Club International

For nearly 100 years, Lions have served their communities with dedication and contributed to the development and well-being of millions of people around the world. To celebrate our 100th anniversary, we are asking Lions to help reach our Centennial Service Challenge goal of serving more than 100 million people by June 2018.

Your club can make a difference in your community and contribute towards the goal by participating in the four Centennial Service Challenge Campaigns. You decide when to serve and which projects are right for your club and community.

Engaging our Youth
Support youth in your community, or inspire the next generation of volunteers by inviting Leos and other local youth to serve on a project with you.

Sharing the Vision
Prevent future cases of unnecessary blindness through vision screenings and educational events. Give the gift of sight through projects that benefit those who are blind or living with low vision.                                                           

Relieving the Hunger
Improve access to healthy food for vulnerable populations in your community.

Protecting our Environment
Protect and improve the environment to make your community a healthier place to live for everyone
