Founded in 1977 as Farningham and District, Swanley & North Downs Lions Club serves the towns and villages along Kent's North Downs, where its members live and where it raises funds to support local needs. 

We meet requests for help, both financial and practical, from many organisations (and individuals), giving preference to those within our catchment area. We have a major commitment to the Lions Hospice (now part of EllenorLions Hospices) which serves our area and which the club helped to found. Club members continue to raise funds for the Hospice and give practical help as volunteers in various roles.

Our four major fund-raising activities are a sponsored walk in April/May;  a Golf Day in June; 'Bike around Brands' in August and the 'Swanley Park 10k Cross Country race and (shorter distance) Fun Run - in September.  We also 'shake a bucket' in a local shopping centre each Christmas and take carols and Santa Claus around the streets.

But just in case you get the impression Lionism is all about fund-raising, we (and our families and friends) also enjoy 'life with the Lions'. We have a lively social programme and even fund-raising events can be fun - the best results come from a team of good friends! 

The Club meets twice a month, on the second and fourth Wednesdays at the Castle PH in Eynsford at 8pm and a warm welcome is extended to anyone to come and find out what Lionism in Swanley and North Downs is all about.
