The Aldridge & District Lions Club have been active in the Aldridge area for over 27 years during which time our fundraising activities have raised many thousands of pounds which has been used to fund a very wide range of needy causes locally, nationally and internationally.
Today, the Lions organise two main events during the year which are the major sources of income. During the run up to Christmas each year, the members are active each weekend collecting monies for their charity fund and bringing along Santa to local stores to meet the children.
Every June the Lions present the annual Aldridge Summer Fayre, now in its 22nd year. This is the main community event for the people of Aldridge and surrounding areas and thousands of people come to this free event on Anchor Meadow, in Aldridge.
Apart from these two major events the Lions also arrange several other fund raising activities during the year, including Beer & Skittles evenings. Other events include quizzes and sponsored activities.
However, it is not all hard work for the Lions. We very much believe in fellowship and fun and we arrange many events for our own members such as meals, Walks and much more.
