The Youth Exhange programme is based on the first object of Lions "To create and foster a spirit of understanding among the peoples of the world".

The Youth Exchange programme began in 1961 and is committed to broadening international awareness among young people worldwide.  

The programme emphasises the value of sharing and community life in another country; it is not about tourism.



Girls Rugby Tournament


For the second year running the Lions Clubs of Worcestershire got together to sponsor and support a School Girls Rugby Tournament.

The Clubs (Bromsgrove, Droitwich, Evesham, Kidderminster and District, Malvern Hills, Redditch and Worcester) were delighted to see 220 girls from 11 local schools take part in Tag and Contact Rugby competitions at Sixways ground (home for Worcester Warriors) before playing a final match to decide who would take home the trophy. The teams were from years 7/8 and 9/10 and all demonstrated great skills during some quite tough matches with very few injuries reported.

Members of the Clubs were on hand to act as pitch marshals and managers and to give support to their local team. And, although it was a bitterly cold day it was a resounding success, enjoyed by players and supporters and it is hoped that this will become an annual event.
