PONTELAND LIONS CLUB was founded in 1982 and serves the community by arranging fund raising events and using the money to support local people and organisations and some of the Lions’ projects overseas. The club is a part of a worldwide organisation in 200 countries with headquarters in the United States.
The Lions run a bookstall on the last Saturday of the month, except December, outside Waitrose. Unwanted spectacles are also collected for recycling to poorer countries. The Club takes less able people to the Panto, entertains the older members of the community and liases with the schools on a number of projects. Our largest donation this year was to the RNLI. There is a photograph and description of this event on this web site.
We meet on the second Wednesday of the month at the Merton Hall at 7.30pm and on the fourth Wednesday a variety of social events are planned for members, partners and friends.
The Ponteland Lions Club welcomes both men and women. Interested persons are invited to contact the secretary on 0845 8339913 for more information.
Lions Clubs – Ready to Help, Worldwide
Whenever a Lions club gets together, problems get smaller. And communities get better. That’s because we help where help is needed – in our own communities and around the world – with unmatched integrity and energy.
The World’s Largest Service Club Organization
Our 46,000 clubs and 1.35 million members make us the world’s largest service club organization. We’re also one of the most effective. Our members do whatever is needed to help their local communities. Everywhere we work, we make friends. With children who need eyeglasses, with seniors who don’t have enough to eat and with people we may never meet.
