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 £30,000 for local causes and international charities.

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. 

- Community Service 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.
