Welcome to

The Lions Club of Morpeth

For the past four years Morpeth Lions Club has provided helpers to act as referees at Coca-Cola’s (CCEP) Unified Sports Tournament.  This brings together teams from the company’s East Kilbride, Wakefield & Morpeth sites areas as well as athletes from local Special Olympics clubs.  The event is dedicated to promoting social inclusion through shared sports training and competition experiences.

Unified Sports joins people with and without intellectual disabilities on the same team.  It was inspired by a simple principle; training together and playing together is a quick path to friendship and understanding.

There is plenty of sporting action with boccia & carpet bowls, badminton, 6-a-side football and swimming.  Above all , however, it is about fun and engagement for the competitors, spectators and volunteers alike.

Morpeth Lions Club has also helped financiallywhen an appeal went out and successfully concluded to purchase a minibus for the local Special Olympic teams.
