Welcome to the website of the Lions Club of Tavistock, in the heart of the South West of England. Our club is part of Lions Clubs International (see the 'What's a Lion' page) and our primary aim is to raise and distribute funds within our local area. This website contains lots of information about the club, our activities and also details of forthcoming events and who to contact for further information.
Sorry, but because of adverse weather conditions forecast for Saturday evening, we have had to cancel the Balloon Glow. We are hoping it may be possible to rearrange the event later in the year, and will give further details as soon as they become available.
Sorry for the disappointment this may cause.
This is our Birthday Party and this year the Lions Club of Tavistock was 40 years old.
We celebrated in style in the Tavistock Town Hall on 27th February, with many of our friends from the Community and other Lions clubs.
A special cake made by Lion Sue Collins, was cut by our Lion president, Richard Jones, ably assisted by his wife, Jacky.
2015 Trees of Light
Another very successful year with more lights sponsored than ever..... led to this presentation
to the local branches of our three Charities - CLIC Sargent, the Motor Neurone Disease Association and Marie Curie.
£1800 went to each of the Charities with more to come when gift aid is reclaimed!
Thank you to everyone who supported these worthy causes by sponsoring a light.
Lions Brenda and Bill organised another very successful Draw with £1700 going to Children's charities; this year £850 went to the Children's Hospice South West, £500 to the Mary Budding Trust and £350 to Whitchurch Pre-school - a great result and thank you to all those who bought tickets!
And here is the lucky prizewinner with the first prize, a great picture of Tavistock from West Street, kindly donated by Rik Hawkins of the Tavistock Picture Framing Gallery. Many thanks to Rik and his team for again supporting us with such a generous prize!Balloon Glow
