Formed in 1970 Malling District Lions Club has proudly served the local and International community ever since and we celebrated our Golden Jubilee in October 2021 (held over from the previous year due to the pandemic)with a special Charter Anniversary Dinner at the West Malling Golf Club.  The picture below shows some of the Club members at the event.             The image courtesy of Stanford Photographic -



The Club holds various activities throughout the year to raise funds; Tin Shakes and Events are our specialities.   We have 14 full members.  We also have a thriving body of Friends of Lions and past members who help us out at events as well as attending social gatherings.

We sadly lost Katie, one of our long serving members recently and there was a good eepresentation at her funeral.  As she was very involved in the heart of kent Hocpice, we received this very touching letter of thanks for the donation in her memory:- 

Dear Mike and all at Malling District Lions

On behalf of the whole Hospice team, I would like to personally thank you for your kind and generous donation of £200 to the Hospice in memory of Katie Hogan.  Please accept my condolences following your loss and if I can be of any further help or assistance, please do not hesitate to contact me. 

Thanks to your gift, our Heart of Kent Hospice nurses can care for people whose lives have been turned upside-down by terminal illness. You are helping to make every moment as good as it can possibly be for our patients and those they love. 

Lara, a Nurse who works on our Inpatient Unit, asked me to pass on this message to you:  "I'm astonished and humbled by the selflessness and goodness of people like you. You give so generously and mind so much about people you've never met.  "I can't tell you how much it means to know that you are standing alongside me and my colleagues.  You're with us every time we comfort a patient. You're sharing every hug we give a relative."  

We couldn't do any of this without you. Thank you from the bottom of our hearts.   

Wishing you a healthy and happy New Year.
