Mexborough & District Lions are a branch of Lions Clubs International, the world’s largest Voluntary Service Organisation. The club was formed in 1971 and covers Dearne Valley and Conisbrough, providing help to local community needs.
We give our aid to community groups, schools, health agencies and to many individuals.
Above all we are ordinary people, just like you, who like working as a team towards the common goal of helping the community.
Our members come from all walks of life, some are still working and others are retired.
Our aim is to serve but we also make sure that we have fun whilst doing so. We have a very active social side too.
We meet at 8pm on the 1st and 3rd Tuesday of each month at the LNER Club in Swinton. Here we discuss club business and plan our activities. Detailed planning is done more informally – usually in someone’s front room over a glass of ‘pop’
