Lions Club of Stowmarket and District

Incorporating the Lions Club of Stowmarket and District Charitable Trust Registered No. 1060631

Who We Are, What We Do

We are part of Lions Clubs International, the world’s largest service organisation.

Lions were founded in Chicago in 1917 and now have 1.35 million members in more than 200 countries.

Stowmarket and District Lions Club is one of the largest in the UK and Ireland.

We raise money and give help to those less fortunate.

The money we donate goes to meet a range of needs – typically local hospices, youth organisations, emergency groups, medical research and worldwide catastrophes and health projects.

Also, we give direct help to local people with problems that ‘fall through the net’, such as equipment for children with special needs.

We have fun through a lively social programme.

In addition to our monthly business meetings we have a monthly social meeting.

This generally involves visits in the summer months and speaker dinners in the winter.

Each year we celebrate our formation with a formal Charter Dinner – black ties and posh frocks!
