A very warm welcome to all non Lions and fellow Lions for visiting our website
Macclesfield & District Lions Club has served the local community for over 40 years, and in a year on average we fundraise and donate over £18,000 to good causes and carry out welfare work such as distributing 200 Christmas food parcels and providing trips and parties for senior citizens.
This work can only be carried out thanks to an enthusiastic membership who also have fun and enjoyment through social gatherings.
Lions meet the needs of local communities and the world every day because they share a core belief - to serve their community.
In 2015-2016 over 40 grants for a total of nearly £20,000 made; the largest being to BBC Children in Need, Middlewood Riding for the Disabled, East Cheshire Hospice, Bosley Disaster Appeal, Girlguiding Bollington, Lions Clubs International Foundation - Disaster Relief, Mary Sunley Canal Boat Charity, Lions Youth Brass. There were numerous other recipients and regular support given to the Bridgend Centre, Bollington and a contribution made to Prestbury Youth Club.
In the previous year, help given to 2 schools in Bollington to help purchase defibrillators and a substantial donation made to Prestbury Park Playground.
On the income side, very substantial funds were raised from the annual Swimarathon and the Bollington BikeFest.
Very recently £1,000 was donated to the Bosley Disaster Appeal.

Lions have a dynamic history. Founded in 1917, we are best known for fighting blindness, but we also volunteer for many different kinds of community projects - including caring for the environment, feeding the hungry and aiding seniors and the disabled.
