Uckfield Leo Club  

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.

Juliet Smith met members of Leos, a junior branch of the Uckfield and District Lions Club, and said she was impressed to learn of their passion for voluntary work and, in particular, their focus on providing defibrillators within their community.

She added: “I hope all that they are doing will inspire other young people to follow suit and in so doing help save lives.”

The Leos helped raise about £2,000 towards buying, installing and training the UCTC first aid team to use a defibrillator now to be found on a wall in reception


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.
