Bodmin Lions:

The Lions Club of Bodmin is part of a world-wide organisation of volunteers who enjoy helping others less fortunate than themselves. The world-wide membership is about 1.35 million volunteers in 206 countries in 45,000 clubs. A Lions Club has no full-time organisers and all the work is done in our members’ spare time with the support and help of their partners and families. We raise money by organising and helping with several local events such as – The Father Christmas Sleigh throughout December; prize bingo every Friday; bonfire and fireworks display in Priory Park every November; Fun Ride in September. We take an active role in helping other organisations and charities in Bodmin to raise money and awareness for themselves by organising and marshalling the Bodmin Ten Tors in May; and organising the Shire House Christmas Fayre in November. There are numerous other ways in which we help our local community, including by organising the St Piran’s Day parade in March, and organising and funding the Senior Citizens’ Christmas Party in the Shire Hall. More information and photographs of our activities can be found on our website.
