Meetings
Our club projects include sponsorship of local events and individuals as well as support for numerous local and Lions Clubs International projects.

Sponsorship

We are proud sponsors of a skateboarding tournament each year at Hairy Bob's Skateboarding Park. Prizes are awarded on the day for the best skateboarder, BMX rider, Micro scooter rider and Blader.

 Local Projects

Message in a Bottle 

The Lions Message in a Bottle is a simple idea that encourages people to keep their basic personal and medical details in a common place where they can easily be found in an emergency. The information is kept in a bottle which is kept in the fridge where emergency services would look to find it in the event of being called to your home. They will know you have a bottle by two labels, one which is fixed on the inside of your front door or main entrance to your home and the other on the door of your fridge.

The bottles are free with all costs being paid for by local Lions via generous donations from the public and can be found in most doctor's surgeries in the Scarborough area.

Spectacle collection, repair and re-allocation

YOUR UNWANTED SPECTACLES COULD IMPROVE THE LIFE OF A PERSON IN THE DEVELOPING WORLD.

LIONS CLUBS INTERNATIONAL HAVE BEEN COLLECTING AND SORTING SPECTACLES FOR THE LAST 27 YEARS. THEY ARE TRANSPORTED TO MEDICO FRANCE IN LE HAVRE.  AFTER BEING CLEANED AND GRADED THEY ARE READY FOR USE IN EYE CAMPS IN AFRICA, INDIA and EASTERN EUROPE.

International Projects

 Working with our fellow Lions across the world we also sponsor Sight First, a service to the visually impaired which has raised over £150 million with over 800 grants totalling some £98 million being approved for blindness prevention in over 90 countries.

Every Year we hold Our World Sight Day when we highlight the plight of the visually impaired in the third world. Watch this space for our next day.
