Welcome to the pages of Rottingdean and Saltdean Lions

Lions Clubs International is the world's largest service club organisation. Its 1.4 million members are dedicated to bettering the quality of life for the handicapped, the poor, the sick and the aged. The motto of Lions Clubs International is “WE SERVE,” and Lions live this motto with enthusiasm.


Rottingdean and Saltdean Lions are a service organisation of male volunteers who raise funds by organising and staffing local events such as Rottingdean Lions Fayre, Saltdean Gala, Charity Golf Day, a sponsored swim and similar fundraising activities.


The Club helps local communities in a number of ways with every penny raised going direct to good causes.  Not one penny is spent on administration as the Lions Club running costs are funded by our members.  We focus on good deeds and help those who are less fortunate...

Thank you for your support at our recent Lions Fayre

We would like to say a big thank you to the large number of people who came to help us set up and take down at our Fayre in Rottingdean in June and especially those who stayed for the whole day.  We are afraid that there were so many of you that we didn’t get all your names to thank you personally.  We hope you will all be around to help us in Saltdean on 13th July it made such a big difference.
