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.

News from the Club

Here is our latest Club photograph - thanks James Bird!



Lions Clubs International recognize outstanding individuals by bestowing on them an award that is named after its founder, Melvin Jones.  This award is the highest form of recognition and embodies humanitarian ideas consistent with the nature and purpose of Lionism.  The recipient of this award becomes a model of exemplary service to his club and the community which it serves.  President Paul Blowey was delighted to present Lions Steve Grummitt and Chris Northey with the award of a Melvin Jones Fellowship at our recent Charter Night Celebration.

The Scratch Mikado
We were very pleased to be supporting the Scratch Mikado Event in the Parish Church
It  was brilliant!!  Our thanks to the Tavistock Musical Theatre Company and Plymouth G and S Fellowship and especially Dr Paul Foster and Dr Sean Sweeney for a wonderful evening - and of course, Peter Clement for production - and thinking of us!
Nearly £650 was raised for locally-based charities and good causes. 




 
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.
