Lions Club International was formed in 1917 so 2017 was our centenary year. Across the world there are some 1.4 million members. The Rottingdean and Saltdean Lions Club was formed in 1973 and is still going strong.

We help local communities, charities and needy individuals in many ways, and also contribute to international humanitarian good causes through the Lions Club International Foundation. Every penny the Club collects goes to good causes with not one penny going on administration as members fund all of the club’s running costs.

We regularly raise over £20,000 annually thanks to the generosity of local residents and businesses, and in the year to 30 June 2017 made charitable donations totalling some £24,000.

We are always looking at new ways to raise money, as well as continuing with our regular events, and to increase awareness of the club. There have been some promising initiatives recently in both of these areas which I hope to see developed further during my year as President. Please look out for us locally in our distinctive yellow tops.

The club donated books to all primary school reception class pupils to commemorate our centenary.

We are always looking for help at our events, particularly at our Rottingdean Fayre and Saltdean Gala. If you would like to help, or find out more about us please get in touch at or on 0845 8339 617.
