• How many people are there in a Lions Club ?

Usually between 15 and 35, although Clubs do vary. Oswestry currently has 10 members, but with some Lions moving on each year it is essential to replace them. We actively seek new members.

  • What about my family ?

 We work on the principle that partners and family may support all fund raising activities and socials. You and your family will be welcome to our Lions community in Oswestry.

  • Is Lions just fund raising ?

Certainly not. We have a variety of community service activities e.g. supporting youth, the elderly, those with disabilities and health. Did you know that Lions International raised $135m with the intention of eradicating preventable blindness throughout the world ?

  •  How much time will I have to commit to Lions ?

 The commitment is only what  you choose to make it. We find, as with most things in life, the more you can put in, the more you will get out.

  •  How can I find out whether I would enjoy Lions ?

 Contact us via the "Contact Us" page. We will tell you more about OswestryLions, answer any further questions you may have, and invite you to a social event or Club meeting.

Is it a Charity ?

Yes we are registered with the Charities Commission ( Registration No 1123785 ). This means we keep our fund raising strictly separate from our membership and administration costs, which we pay for through subscriptions.

  • Is it expensive ?

Our annual membership subscription is only £60, in other words just £1.15 per week, payable twice a year--July and January. A family joint membership is £52 per year.

  • Do I have to be a professional person to join Lions ?

No. Lions welcome everyone from all backgrounds and walks of life, male or female, whether you are working or retired, providing you share in our objectives - to serve the local community.
