WE WISH EVERYONE A HAPPY CHRISTMAS AND PROSPEROUS NEW YEAR


As the year draws to a close may we take the opportunity to thank all those who have helped and supported us.


We look forward to your continued support in the New Year when hopefully we can achieve even more.

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...
