Carmarthen Lions Club has been serving the local community for over 40 years. It was formed in 1974 and has a notable presence in the recent history of Carmarthen. The now popular River Festival held annually was once a Raft Race organised by the Lions Club.
Members meet on the first and third Wednesday of the month, (except August). The first Wednesday is a business meeting and the third Wednesday is a dinner meeting, a chance to meet other Club Lion Members on a social front.
We are always looking for like minded people to join our club and support our local community.

It’s great to see you visiting the Carmarthen Lions website where the aim is to keep our Community informed.
My name is Alan Jones and I am honoured to be chosen as this year’s Club’s President and I thank the Members for their confidence in me.
We in Carmarthen Lions are part of the largest volunteer service organisation in the world, with 1.4 million Lions worldwide. As part of the global family of Lions we contribute to providing humanitarian aid across the world together with supporting local causes and organisations. We are here to help.
If we send funds abroad they will be sent to the local Lions Clubs in the disaster area for them to administer. Nothing is retained.
On a local level we support many local projects and good causes both physically and by fundraising on their behalf. We raise funds in a number of ways such as Race Nights, collections, Charity Dinners and any other innovative approach which comes along.
We also support young people through various projects, the elderly and needy as well as giving help to the local Hospital together with groups that cater for the physically and mentally impaired.
We are keen to support projects connected with Sight, these include diabetes awareness days and collecting old spectacles for recycling.
My aims for this year is to continue the great work we do in raising funds for needy causes, and various community service activities, but in addition, I would like to further develop our links with youth in the area, and increase the membership of our Club. As with other service organisations, this is a constant challenge, and we are always on the lookout for new members (both male and female) who can spare a few hours a month to help those less fortunate than themselves.
We could always use more helpers and with more people to support us, we could increase our contribution even more. If you are interested in finding out more about Lions and what we do please contact me (01267 290788) or any member of Carmarthen Lions Club.
Club Members join in Community Events and get to know other like minded people, make friends and have great fun whilst doing so. Alone we can do something – together we can do so much more.
Lions is about ordinary people working together to achieve extra-ordinary things – thank you for your ongoing support.
Thank you for visiting the website
