Easingwold District Lions Club 

who are we?

Easingwold District Lions have been at the heart of Easingwold and Villages community since 1978 and we have been serving our area ever since.

We are all proud to be part of the largest volunteering organisation in the world – Lions International. With 46,000 clubs and 1.35 million members, we can truly be called a global network of people with similar ideas to our own.

We are also proud to get involved in many initiatives to help our local community, including supporting local groups such as Easingwold Football Club juniors, much needed furniture for local Schools & community halls, supporting local families with disabled children etc. We also arrange local health screening initiatives such as for diabeties & Prostate Cancer.

To support those further afield, we have placed spectacle recycling boxes in our library, Boots & the Coop supermarket so that they can be reused by people in the third world.

We are internationally one of the most effective voluntary organisations with member clubs in every area affected by disaster or requiring need. That way clubs can tell us exactly what is needed before the large aid agencies have acted. Our members do whatever is needed to help their local communities. You could get involved too if you would like to join us!

Why are we called Lions?

Our name was not selected at random, neither was it a coined name. From time immemorial, the lion has been the symbol of all that was good, and because of the symbolism that name was chosen. Four outstanding qualities – Courage, Strength, Activity and Fidelity – had largely to do with the adoption of the name. The last mentioned of these qualities, Fidelity, has a deep and peculiar significance for all Lions. The lion symbol has been a symbol of Fidelity through the ages and among all nations, ancient and modern. It stands for loyalty to a friend, loyalty to a principle, loyalty to a duty, loyalty to a trust.
