Boroughbridge Lions are a dedicated band of men and women who give of their spare time for the benefit of the community. Although Boroughbridge based, our area of action ranges from Green Hammerton to Dishforth and Marton cum Grafton to Roecliffe. Current projects include a Walking Football Tournament, the Family Cycle Day and marshalling at a variety of local events. We have several social events through the year.
Although some 80% of our funds are re-invested in the local community we also support national and international events (mainly disaster relief). Space precludes detailing all we do locally and, for the more adventurous, the many Lions overseas projects; explore our web site for all all the details, including video links.
All Lions Clubs have their respective communities at the heart of what they do, but are backed by national and international organisations who provide such things as comprehensive insurance cover, performing rights licenses, and advice on such vital matters as health and safety, risk assessments and food hygiene - all very necessary if you are organizing any sort of event. Indeed, Lions International is the world largest service organisation with some 46,000 clubs in over 200 countries. There is plenty of scope for participation in numerous overseas projects for those who wish to extend their contribution beyond the local community.
Boroughbridge Lions meet monthly, but attendance requirements are flexible to accommodate the time pressures on today’s young families; we also welcome couples, with discounted membership rates, so that, if necessary attendance can be shared.
If you would like to find out more, why not come to one of our meetings on the second Tuesday of the month at 8pm the Crown Hotel – they are informal and very friendly.
