TROWBRIDGE LIONS CLUB …..NEEDS YOU….!!!
“Ordinary People…….Amazing Things”
Do you fancy the idea of having lots of laughs, doing some good for the people in your area and around the world, and making new friends at the same time?
Trowbridge Lions Club is part of Lions International, the largest voluntary service organisation in the world- over 1.3 million members with 46,000 clubs in 202 countries. There are 970 Clubs in towns, cities and villages throughout the British Isles and Ireland.
As Lions we basically get involved in 4 main areas :-
1) We raise monies for our local communities and worldwide needs such as disasters etc.
2) We organise welfare projects to make sure that needy people receive the monies we have raised.
3) We serve – providing transport, care, equipment etc. and any other practical help that we can see is needed to improve the quality of life for others.
4) We socialise, meeting together and with other Lions and friends for social activities, so its not all just helping others, we enjoy what we do!
WHERE? In and around our local community but also helping with National and International crises and disasters.
WHO? Lions come from all walks of life, of all ages, and we have no political or religious associations. Our common aim is just to enjoy helping others. The only requirements are that you are of an active and lively disposition and are just able to devote a little bit of time occasionally to help with what we do.
Why don’t you come and try joining in with one of our meetings! you will be made to feel very welcome or feel free to bring a friend along with you, if you feel awkward arriving alone.
WHAT? Activities include assisting families in distress, helping the old, working with the blind, physically and mentally disabled, helping provide hospital equipment, food parcels, providing transport and outings.
Socially we meet for informal drinks, meals, BBQ’s, skittles, walks and quiz nights etc. We also meet for more formal and ceremonial events annually and provide the opportunity to meet up with members from other clubs.
WHY? Because we feel passionately that everybody should put something back into society , as it brings so much more pleasure helping others.
WHEN? We meet on the 2nd and 4th Thursday evenings each month at 8pm at the Trowbridge Cricket Club Pavilion, Timbrell Street, Trowbridge BA14 8PP and then plan activities for other times, but members can just give of what ever time they feel able. No pressure is applied and we only require a commitment to attend two meetings a month with apologies if absent.
