INTRODUCTION

Our club is part of the Lions Clubs International - a truly global service organisation with over 1.3 million members in 205 countries. We are a group of service-minded individuals working to help our community. Our motto is "We Serve" and we are proud to recognise ourselves as "ordinary people who achieve amazing things".

The main purpose of the Basildon and Wickford Lions Club is to support our community, sometimes through financial help, sometimes by 'rolling our sleeves up', and sometimes a bit of both. We organise events to raise funds to support these community services projects. Though all of our service and fund raising activities are enjoyable in their own right, we also take time out just to have fun together.

Click on the links to the left to find more information about the club, what we do, what being a member entails, and how to contact us. If you like the look of what we do and you havesome time to spare maybe you would like to think about joining us? We are always looking for new members.

LIONS CLUBS INTERNATIONAL ANNUAL PEACEPOSTER COMPETITION 

The Lions Clubs International (LCI) organisation runs an annual 'Peace Poster' Contest, and schools and other youth groups throughout the world are invited to enter through the local Lions Club. The Basildon & Wickford Lions Club is pleased to invite local schools and youth groups to enter.

The contest is judged on a geographical hierarchical basis firstly for each individual participating school, then 'District', then national, and finally at International level. Our Lions District covers the East Anglia area, including Essex, Suffolk, Norfolk, and Cambridgeshire. Our District includes a separate category for Special Schools.

This competition gives an opportunity to encourage the young people in our local community to think about the importance of world peace, tolerance, and international understanding, and it encourages these young people to share their unique visions with the world, through pictures.

COFFEE MORNINGS AT ST ANDREW'S CENTRE, WICKFORD

We hope that you enjoy the opportunity to drop by at these events to enjoy a tea / coffee, a cake, a bit of a natter, and a chance to rest your feet! These mornings help to raise much needed funds, sometimes directly for the St Andrew's Centre, but on this occasion for our own general Charity funds.
