THE LIONS CLUB OF CHIPPENHAM
Welcome to our website. You can use this site to learn more about the things we do in the district and how to make contact with us.
This page gives you an overview of who we are, and other pages give you more detail on how we raise money and where that money has been donated.
You may need to contact us if you need our help or if you would like to join us. In either case you can contact us using any of the e-mail addresses you come across on this site and we will get back to you. We meet on the third Monday of each month at 19:30 at the Chippenham Golf Club, Malmesbury Road, Chippenham, Wiltshire SN15 5LT.

Lion International Organisation
Lions are members of community service clubs, dedicated to the idea that the men and women who live in a community are in the best position to know who needs help and why. More than 44,500 strong, these local clubs are part of the world's largest such organisation, with 1.4 million members serving in more than 180 countries and areas. The association is both non-political and non-sectarian. Lions are proud that The Financial Times has ranked Lions Clubs International Foundation as - "the best among non-government organisations worldwide with which to work”
The Lions Club of Chippenham
The Lions Club of Chippenham is one of those 44,500 clubs across the world that are part of Lions Clubs International. Each year Chippenham Lions raise about £20,000 for local causes and international charities. Lions believe that local people are best placed to provide help and support to less fortunate members of the community in Chippenham, Corsham and the surrounding villages.
On a local level, the activities in which the Club become involved include:
- Fund raising on behalf of various local charities including Air Ambulance, Transport for the Disabled and St Nicholas School as well as individual assistance to local needy, aged and disadvantaged persons.
- Welfare work to provide entertainment, outings and sporting facilities as well as providing hot dinners on Christmas Day for those spending Christmas alone.
The Club also provides funds to assist at an international level and supports:
- Eye Camps and Water Wells in the Third World
- Assistance to the Aged, Blind and the Deaf
- Help with emergency disaster relief anywhere in the world
As well as this work, every month Chippenham Lions enjoy at least one social event – an informal or formal night, or a picnic, trip or visit to the theatre or something similar.
A full diary of events can be found at the Calendar link on the left and our more immediate fund raising, welfare and social events are featured above right.
