Meetings

Who are Wirral Lions?

  • We are a group of people who try to make a difference in Wirral by helping those less fortunate than ourselves.
  • We raise money (averaging £15,000 a year) for charity, with our Christmas sleigh, bedding plant sales, charity walks, collections and raffles.
  • We support a wide range of local charities and help people in need across Wirral and, as a part of Lions Clubs International, we also help some causes further afield, both in this country and abroad.
  • We give practical help where we can, including our “Message in a Bottle” scheme for vulnerable people and by the recycling of spectacles for the Third World.
  • As well as helping others, we enjoy many social events and develop strong lasting friendships.

What area do we cover?

We cover the western and central Wirral area, from Hoylake to Heswall, south to Neston and across to Bebington and Bromborough, and our members live in all parts of the Wirral.

Does it cost a lot to be a member?

It doesn't cost a lot to be a member and we are always pleased to hear from prospective new members - men and women - who want to give something back to the community and enjoy fun and fellowship in the process.

Where and when do we meet?

Our regular club meeting is on the first Tuesday in the month at The Bridge Inn, Port Sunlight at 7.45pm. Please contact the secretary, David, (648 9157) if you would like further details or if you would like to come along and see for yourself what we do.

IF YOU WOULD LIKE TO JOIN US - OR JUST FIND OUT MORE - PLEASE GET IN TOUCH. WE'LL BE DELIGHTED TO HEAR FROM YOU!

LATEST NEWS

SANTA'S SLEIGH RESULTS

Our trips out with Santa's sleigh, and collections at supermarkets, raised a total of £9,309 over the Christmas period. This magnificent total is thanks to the generosity of the people of Wirral but we couldn't achieve this result without the help of some friends of Lions and a fantastic team of sixth-formers from Wirral Grammar School for Boys. Our thanks go to them, but also to Asda, Aldi, Tesco and Sainsbury's who knidly allow us to collect at their stores.

We also helped Wirral Hospice St John, along with other supporters, to collect Christmas trees after the holiday. This raises lots of funds for the hospice and we are delighted to help with this super scheme.

WEEKEND AWAY

Our annual weekend away this year will be to Lichfield, Staffordshire in April. We will be visiting the National Memorial Arboretum and, no doubt, some other attractions in the area.

BEDDING PLANT SALE

We will soon be distributing order froms for our annual Bedding Plant Sale, and will deliver customers' plants in May. If you are not a regular customer but would like to order plants next year, including ready made hanging baskets as well as trays of plants, please give us a ring and we will see if we can cover where you live.

We will be doing our annual Sponsored Walk on 25 April in aid of "Blood Bikes", which carry supplies of blood to hospitals around the region. The Lions Clubs of Wirral and Chester are working together to fund one new bike for this brilliant cause. You could come and join us for the walk - sponsorship is appreciated but not essential - just come and have a bit of exercise and a spot of lunch at the end!

SUPPORT WIRRAL LIONS - FREE!

If you shop on-line you could support your local community with no cost to yourself using a website called "The Giving Machine" -

https://www.thegivingmachine.co.uk

and nominating Wirral Lions Charitable Trust Fund as the cause you want to support. Various suppliers support this site, including Amazon, John Lewis, M&S, Next, Debenhams and many others. The supplier gives a small percentage of the value of every order (the amount varies) to the nominated charity and it costs you nothing. Just through our own members so far, we have raised a useful extra amount for our funds. If you would like to help in this way and require further information, please contact us.

WIRRAL LIONS 150 CLUB

Many of our supporters subscribe to our 150 Club, a monthly raffle with cash prizes. It only costs £1.00 per month to join the draw and it makes a useful amount towards our Charitable Trust Fund, which goes to various good causes. Please contact us if you would like to join.

SPECTACLE RECYCLING

You can help Wirral Lions' spectacle recycling scheme by donating those old glasses you no longer need. See the details in the Spectacle Recycling page opposite for where you can leave them. Thank you for your support!
