Supporting our community
This is what “Lions” are all about! Giving a helping hand to those who are less fortunate than ourselves, or supporting our local youth and senior citizens – generally just putting something back into our community.
See out “Current Projects” tab, for info about recent / up and coming projects Stonehaven Lions are supporting.
Support can be financial; running a BBQ / Race Night for a local group; putting on our Annual Senior Citizens Concert, or by the Lions running events such as the “Feein’ Market” which as well as giving the community a great day out, it also gives many local groups the opportunity, (which they might not otherwise have) to raise much needed funds themselves by taking a stall at the “Feein’ Market” or “Harbour Festival”.
If Stonehaven and District Lions Club can help you or your group, please get in touch with us via the “Contact Us” page on our website, where we will be happy to consider your request for support.
Being part of a global service organisation, “Lions Club International” we also support the work of Lions further afield via “LCIF” or our Lions District (North England & Scotland) or our Lions Multiple District (British Isles & Ireland), but the vast majority of what we raise stays in the local community.
Several years ago, Stonehaven Lions obtained financial support from the Lions wider family to support the Stonehaven Flood Appeal.
