Hello, we are the Basingstoke Lions Club. We are a local branch of an international service organisation called Lions International.
The overall aim of Lions International is "To empower volunteers to serve their communities, meet humanitarian needs, encourage peace, and promote international understanding through Lions Clubs”.
Our Club consists of people who live and/or work in Basingstoke and who want to support the local community. Often, we find that local people and small charities or projects are overlooked when given grants or support. We try to fill that gap by donating money and time. We are not a large a club, but we do what we can with the means we have. We fundraise all year round, through events such as concerts, quizzes, market stalls, and our fun Lions’ Den putting game with which we attend fêtes and festivals. We also do old-fashioned ‘tin-shakes’ at supermarkets at Christmas.
