  Uckfield Leo Club  

UCTC Indulgence Day

At the Uckfield Community College, with the support and assistance of the teachers, we have  a Leo Club with an emphasis on community service. Members are eligible to join from the age of 12 up to when they leave school.

On Saturday 18th November 2017, Leos attended the UCTC Indulgence Day to raise money with their Christmas fruit machine & pin the nose on Santa game.

Uckfield Leos arrange Christmas collection for Uckfield Foodbank

Uckfield Leos, the youth arm of Uckfield Lions based in the Sixth Form at UCTC, decided to organise a Christmas collection, within the school, of goods to donate to the Uckfield Foodbank.  The Leos went into assemblies and put up posters to advertise the event and the collection ran from the 11th to the 15th of December.

Pupils and staff supported the collection and on Friday afternoon a car load of goods. made up of over 400 items, was delivered to the Uckfield Foodbank by Leo Advisor Chris Sherwood and Leo President Holly Peat

On Tuesday 13th March 2018 a group of Leos from UCTC travelled to London, with Leo Advisor Lion Chris Sherwood, to attend the Lions Day with the United Nations at the House of Commons. After drinks and cakes in the cafeteria at the Palace of Westminster, the Leos entered Committee Room 14 to listen to presentations on the refugee crisis, UNESCO, and the role of the Lions within the UN and a talk by the incoming Lions International President Gudrun Bjort Yngvadottir.

The Uckfield Leos Club, which is in its eighth year at UCTC, has 16 members this year and they meet regularly to plan events and agree which charities they would like to support. Since September the Leos have dressed up and collected on Carnival night, held a Halloween cake sale, had a stall at the Christmas Indulgence and have supported the Lions with their Santa’s sleigh to raise funds.

The Lions Leo Program provides the youth of the world with an opportunity for personal development through volunteering. There are approximately 144,000 Leos in 5,700 Leo clubs in more than 140 countries worldwide. Uckfield & District Lions Club formally re-formed their Leo Club in 2010. This has been achieved by working with the school & the Leo club has around 15 members each year. Membership is always a problem with Leo Clubs as members are constantly going off to further education or moving away to pursue careers. It is vital that the club has new members each year , so any students interested in joining Uckfield Leo Club should contact the school or see our contacts page. Uckfield & District Lions can also be found on Facebook.
