WHO ARE THE ILFRACOMBE AND DISTRICT LIONS?
Ilfracombe and District Lions Club are ordinary men and women; the young and not so young; and the active and less active. The club was formed in 1974 and two of the founding charter members still active in the club!
For many years you will have found us at All Things Morris, Birdman, Rescue Day and Lights Switch On. One of the events that we are most proud of is our Swimarathon. The event returned to Ilfracombe in 2016 and we were delighted to welcome children, young people and adults from local schools and other organisation to Ilfracombe Swimming Pool for what turned out to be a really cracking day. Together we raised over £3,000 for local good causes and organisations.
We are always pleased to talk to potential new members that share our enthusiasm for having fun and raising money for people in need.
