Lions Club of Tavistock
Serving our local community since 1976

Welcome to the website of the Lions Club of Tavistock.

We are very proud to belong to Lions International, the largest Service Organisation in the World. To find out more go to our What's a Lion? page.

Our aim is to make sure that through the events we organise and the money we raise for local charities and good causes, we can help to continue to make Tavistock the special place it is.

This website is kept updated with information about our events throughout the year, as well as including more information on the club and how it works in the local community.  You can also use the link below to view our Facebook page, which is where we post the very latest information, particularly about specific events or our current community projects.

Quiz Night on 23rd February

Ukraine Crisis Relief - an ongoing project

Lions International have been heavily involved in supporting the people of Ukraine in different ways, from fund raising to collecting items for relief trips.  Tavistock Lions have also made a number of donations to the national Lions effort.

On a more practical level, since last January, club members have already completed several return trips as part of a convoy of vehicles taking much needed aid to Warsaw in Poland for onward transport into Ukraine. 


Your generosity has been much appreciated and we know what a difference it has made to those who have received it in the Ukraine. Thank you!!


It is hard to believe that February 24th is the second anniversary of the invasion and to raise money for future humanitarian aid trips we are organising-

- bucket collections in the Square on 17th and 24th February

- collections at Tesco on 16th and 23rd February.

We also have a Quiz Night on Friday 23rd February- details above.


In the United Reform Church from 6:30 pm till 8:30 pm on Tuesday the 2oth there will be a screening of the Ukrainian film "Shadows of a forgotten ancestor", 1965, 1h 50 mins. In Ukrainian, with English subtitles.

Free entry with donations to Lions' Collection.

Recent Donation Presentations

It is always such a highlight to present cheques, and we have recently handed over £4,000 from the Trees of Light to each of the named charities and a separate presentation for £3,000 to the Dartmoor Rescue Group. 

All of them do such a great job in their different fields: 

It was your support that made it possible.  The photos in the carousel below show recipients with former Lions’ President Barry Smith and Matt Hibbert, Community Service Chair.
