Lions Clubs International was founded in 1917 and is the largest voluntary organisation in the world. Its principal goals are to promote good citizenship, to take an active interest in the community, to serve its needs and to relieve distress.
COVID-19 LatestIt is with a heavy heart that we have decided to cancel all of our events for the foreseeable future; Speen Fete, planned for June 13th, our 50th Charter Anniversary celebration and our annual Fireworks Display, planned for October 31st this year.
As the progress of Covid-19 is uncertain and restrictions on social gatherings may well be in place for many months, we could not justify the expenditure on an event that may not be allowed. Due to the cancellation of our fundraising events, we will have limited funds to help those in need at this difficult time.
Helping Our Community
The Lions Club of Newbury has been supporting the local community since it’s formation in 1970. Members are ordinary people like you who get together to help those who may need a bit of extra support from time to time. Organising fund raising activities, acting as stewards at other groups’ events and giving direct service while having fun are just some of the things we do.
Please contact us, if you have a few hours to spare every now and then and would like to help us.
The Lions primary aim is to serve and to help the local community
