HISTORY

The official Formation of Sevenoaks Lions Club took place on 25th September 1968 and the Charter presentation on 20th November 1969.

Since its Formation, there have been over 150 Club members.

 

SOCIAL EVENTS

All work and no play makes Jack a dull boy! So in addition to supporting the local community, our Club likes to get together for social activites. 

Members gather evey year to celebrate the anniversary of our Charter. This year was our 48th! This formal 'Black Tie' event has the Mayor of Sevenoaks and Lions Zone Chairman as guests.

 

TWINNING

Since 1981 Lions Club of Sevenoaks has enjoyed a Twinning with a German Lions Club in Hofgeismar.  This Club is in a beautiful part of Central Germany near the important city of Kassell.  On alternate years we visit each other for three days with our Partners and attend the tourist sites in each other’s country.

Over the years many personal friendships have developed and learning about each other’s culture is important.

Our visit this year was to the important “Documenta” literary festival in Kassell.

 

REMEMBRANCE DAY SERVICE

 

Every year, our Club gathers with other members of the local community at the Remembrance Day Parade and lays a wreath at the War Memorial.

 

 

 

 

 

 

LIONS IN SOUTH EAST ENGLAND

The Lions Clubs in the SE of England have joined together to support the Haematology Department at Kings College Hospital. So far £500,000 has been raised to fund the provision of new equipment.  The Department will move to its new Clinical Research Facility during the next  twelve months and it will need even more new instruments to enable it to treat lymphoma and leukaemia. Lions plan to raise £100,00 to fund this kit.

Learn more about the LIBRA the Lions charity that supports Kings College Hospital by visiting the LIBRA website.

In addition, Lions in the SE are supporting the Kent, Sussex and Surrey Air Ambulance. They have committed to give £250,000 over the next ten years to enable the helicopter to fly at night. This will permit the Air Ambulance Service to respond to life-threatening incidents during the hours of darkness.

Both these projects will provide substantial benefits to the people of Sevenoaks and North Kent. The Lions Club of Sevenoaks has made significant contributions to both schemes.

Visit the Kent, Susses and Surrey Air Ambulance website for further details.
