Lions Club International have a network of 46,000 clubs with 1.35 million members making us the world's largest service club organization. We are also one of the most effective. Our members do whatever is needed to help their local communities. Everywhere we work, we make friends. From children who need glasses to senior citizens who need a mobility aid...... Our motto is "WE SERVE".
The Lions have a dynamic history. Founded in 1917, we are best known for fighting blindness – it's part of our history as well as our work today. But we also perform volunteer work for many different kinds of community projects – including caring for the environment, feeding the hungry and aiding senior citizens and the disabled.
Budleigh Salterton Lions club have been fund raising since 1980. There are a number of projects that we focus on every year. The Gala Week, The Duck Race and The Charity Golf day to name but three. We also do a weekly sunday night quiz and monthly bingo. Club Members give up both their time and enthusiasm to help run each event, and we always get fantastic support from the local community.
Almost every month the Club organises a unique event for members and wives and importantly... prospective members.
Involving the ladies is a crucial feature of the club. On most occasions it would be impossible to hold events such as the Gala Week or the Charity Golf Day without their support.
Lions Club Budleigh Salterton need to inform you of the impact that latest news on the Corona virus is having on all of us, The latest briefing and instructions from the government, e.g. “now is the time for everyone to stop non-essential contact with others and to stop all unnecessary travel" and "avoid pubs, clubs, theatres and other such social venues"
We have spoken in detail about the guidelines that are being put in place, and with guidance from Lions club international we have concluded that all Lions events shall be cancelled until at least 1st June 2020. A decision as to what happens after 1st June would be made closer to that date.
As a result, this will impact our Sunday night quizzes held at the Dog and Donkey, April 8th and May 6th Monthly Bingo’s and Gala week which was due to run from the 23rd of May to the 31st of May and with a heavy heart we have decided to cancel these events.
We are sorry this has come to this, especially as everyone concerned have put in so much work into organising these events but we must ensure the safety of the general public, other organisations and Lions
