Lions 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.
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.
