As you would expect from a fund-raising organisation, the club runs a wide variety of events every year, ranging from the ever popular Carnival Week, which culminates with the grand procession of floats through the town, to the Westcountry Balloon Fiesta, which is now established as the third largest hot air balloon fiesta in the UK!
Below, you'll find details of the many events we're involved with, which form part of our annual events calendar.
In addition to these larger events, the club also organises other events and fund-raisers during the year. Here are a few of the more popular!
This is organised to raise money for local children's charities and youth projects with tickets being sold by club members at the Morrisons supermarket in Tavistock over the weekends leading up to the draw. For the past 5 years Martin Hawkins of the Tavistock Picture Framing Company has donated the 1st prize in the form of a framed limited edition print or original painting.
When the devastating Tsunami of 2004 hit South East Asia, the Club quickly organised a collection of unwanted Christmas presents which were sold at a stall in the town's Bedford Square. Together with donations collected in the week immediately after the Tsunami, the club was able to send vital support to the Lions on the ground in the affected area, so they could buy supplies and help with rebuilding work.
