The Lions Club of Hastings

Our members do whatever is needed to help their local communities.  We make friends everywhere and help children who are in need, people who don't have enough to eat and others we may never meet.  Leading projects, networking and having fun; you can do all of this and more as a  member of Hastings Lions Club.  Our members perform volunteer work to improve their community and also others around the world.

Members past and present of Hastings Lions Club attended a tree planting ceremony in Alexandra Park on Wednesday 18th August. The 8 Oak trees were donated by the Hastings Lions Club and planted last year but owing to the pandemic could not be formally handed over to the Park until now. The members of Hastings Lions Club were joined by their Regional Chairman Lion Wendy Cattaway together with the Mayor of Hastings Councillor James Bacon and the Alexandra Park Tree Officer Chris Wilken. The Oak trees are not of the usual design but will grace this area of the Park for many years to come.

Last year over £30,000,00 was donated to local organisations, charities and good causes including Lions International appeals and projects worldwide during the pandemic year and having our fund-raising capabilities reduced due to Covid.
We collect many thousands of pairs of spectacles each year for recycling or refurbishment for redistribution in less well developed countries.
