Meetings
During the year we organise and participate in many charitable and fundraising events. We also offer marshalling services to organisations in return for a donation to our funds.

Skateboard Competition

In 2010, Scarborough Lions Club launched a skateboarding tournament for local enthusiasts, and it was a huge success. It is now an annual event where the youngsters of Scarborough can come along and show off their skills on skateboards, scooters, roller blades and bikes and win a prize or two as well!

Bonfire Night

Sadly we are no longer able to put on our very popular bonfire night  as the Weaponness site has now been redeveloped. A search for an alternative site with the Council met with no success.

Thank you to everyone for your great support over the past 25 years of staging the bonfires and firework displays.

 Casino Nights

 We have our own casino tables and can run a “Fun Casino Night” at most venues and events you organise for charity or just entertainment.
We can provide roulette, dice and cards (blackjack) using a total of seven tables. We can customise  games to suit the numbers at the event.
You pay us a fee for the tables and croupiers, and you organise the venue, prizes, food, drink and tickets. A Great FUNdraiser.
Our croupiers are able to help the participants learn the games and we also organise the flow of chips to keep the action going. At the end of the evening those with the highest number of chips enter a spin off to determine the lucky winners.
If you would like more information or to book our Fun Casino contact Lion Tony Campbell on 01723 376458

Christmas & Easter sleigh and supermarket fundraising drives

 Each year in December we take our Christmas sleigh along with Father Christmas and his helpers out on to the streets of Scarborough collecting funds to help those in need.  Take a look at our calendar and see when the sleigh will be visiting your area.

In addition, thanks to their generosity in allowing us on to their premises, we organise Christmas and Easter collections at Morrison's, Sainsbury's and Proudfoot stores throughout Scarborough.

 We are delighted to announce that thanks to the generosity of the people of Scarborough we collected over £7000 during our 2018 Xmas sleigh runs and store visits.

Great Yorkshire Bike Ride Marshalling

Each summer along with fellow Lions and Lionesses from the district we provide marshalling services to the Great Yorkshire Bike Ride between Wetherby and Filey.

Young Ambassador Award

Do you know a young person who has done great work in their local community? Each year, young adults aged between 15-19 years old can be nominated for their contribution and outstanding involvement in the local community. We are looking for hopeful individuals to be nominated for this award. 

 Golf Tournament

Are you a keen golfer? Do you have any friends who might be interested in a team golf event during the Summer. We have just the event for you! Each year we hold a golf tournament at South Cliff Golf Club which is open to all.

We hold a Lions Am Am team tournament where teams of 4 gentlemen with official handicaps of 24 or less are invited to take part. Higher handicap golfers can also take part and play off a 24 handicap. Food is available to purchase during the day and the day will finish with the presentation of the many prizes to be won.

Our 2019 Golf Day took place in June at Scarborough South Cliff Golf Club. It was a great success and a good time was had by all.

 New Years Day Dip

 Our 2019 New Year's Day Dip was a huge success with nearly 130 people (all in wonderful fancy dress costumes) participating in the dash into (and out off!) the cold North Sea. Scarborough's Mayor judged the fancy dress and awarded the prizes. Yorkshire Coast Radio's Paddy Billington from 'Paddy in the Morning' was there with live links, interviewing dippers and supporters on their thoughts and experience of taking part in the New Year's Day Dip.

This is an annual event and would not be possible without the support of all the dippers, both local and visitors who come to Scarborough just to take part. This event is a good fundraiser for both dippers and Lions, with 75% of the sponsor money raised going to a charity of the dippers' choice. Over £2000 was raised at this year's event. 

So, if you think that you are brave enough to DIP and would like to raise money for your favourite charity, organisation or club then join the growing band of regular dippers by simply filling in our registration form and e-mailing it back to  aldeacon2004@yahoo.co.uk.  You will then have the necessary forms e-mailed back to you. Please also remember to print off a copy of the dip sponsor form1 and form2 to bring with you on the day. Come on, have a go and earn some money for your favourite charity!
