Ilfracombe and District Lions Club are ordinary men and women; the young and not so young; and the active and less active. The club was formed in 1974 and two of the founding charter members still active in the club!
For many years you will have found us at All Things Morris, Birdman, Rescue Day and Lights Switch On. One of the events that we are most proud of is our Swimarathon.  The event returned to Ilfracombe in 2016 and we were delighted to welcome children, young people and adults from local schools and other organisation to Ilfracombe Swimming Pool for what turned out to be a really cracking day.  Together we raised over £3,000 for local good causes and organisations.
We are always pleased to talk to potential new members that share our enthusiasm for having fun and raising money for people in need.
The COVID-19 epidemic has had a major impact on the Lions fundraising activities.  However, there is a way our supporters can help.
Ilfracombe and District Lions Club have registered Smile Amazon; so If you shop with Amazon and you too sign up to Smile Amazon the company will give 0.5% of your net purchase to Ilfracombe and District Lions Club.
It may not seem a lot but as once said, "Every little helps!"

Online shopping can be helpful, but don't forget to support your local Ilfracombe traders. After all, each year these shops and businesses donate generously to the Lions .

We probably couldn't run the Carnival without their fantastic support.
