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.


Our Next EventIn the April/May edition of the TAVY LINKS a Lions Club Eggstravaganza was listed for Sunday 9th April in the Meadows.  We are really sorry that this will not now be going ahead due to unforeseen circumstances. We very much regret having had to cancel this and hope that it will not disappoint too many people.  However, it is something we are hoping to do in the future.



We shall be here on February 25th - come and see us on our stand and find out more about what Lions do!!



 
Trees of Light

The new lights looked fantastic this Christmas on the beautiful trees, kindly donated by South West Lakes Trust.  Maybe this contributed to the increase in sponsors, bringing in nearly £6,000 for our chosen charities, which this year are CLIC Sargent, Marie Curie and Parkinsons UK.  When we are able to reclaim the tax, this figure will rise again, so, as you can see, it makes possible a really worthwhile donation to three very good causes.

Thank you again to all those who supported and sponsored this wonderful scheme.

Brilliant Night in the Town Hall!!
