Babbacombe & St. Marychurch are proud to support Anode, a local based Charity who run a Food Bank and also supplies household items for local people in real need.


Anode provide volunteers  who will do work for needy families, and as a club, we have arranged for the complete house to be decorated for a family who recently lost their Dad, and Mum and the children were finding it difficult to cope. Anode advised that having a nicely decorated home would cheer up the whole family.





Christmas OAP Party

Every year, at Christmas, we invite elderly people from the Babbacombe and St. Marychurch areas to an afternoon tea party. Each year, we invite about 70 people and they enjoy a substantial tea, with sherry (which goes down a treat!!), followed by live entertainment from local singers, Bingo, a raffle draw, and a visit from Father Christmas. Who says Christmas is just for kids ??? !!! 

For many years, this event was organised by Lion Pam Keen. However, in 2013 due to ill health, Lion Pam handed the reins over to a Committee who excelled at keeping the tradition alive for both the Club, and the many guests who enjoy the day.

Lion Pam did not let her ill health prevent her from joining the Club & guests in 2013 and Babbacombe & St. Marychurch Lions Club President Phil Tozer made a special presentation to Lion Pam to mark the occasion and to thank her for all her hard work over the years.



Lions club in Vera Almeria, Spain

Babbacombe & St. Marychurch Lions Club recently donated £200 to a newly chartered English speaking Lions club in Vera Almeria, Spain, to buy knitting wool to knit blankets  and clothes for Uganda, sent via Lions Clubs in Uganda. The baby clothes and hats were for the "Fish and Chip" babies, so-called because if the newborn babies mothers have nothing to put on the baby, they are wrapped in newspaper ! Lions Marjorie and Clif Cane attended their charter dinner last November.
