Havant Lions Club meets at the Brookfield Hotel in Emsworth Click here for maps and Directions
We have regular business meetings on the First Tuesday of each month at 8pm, there are also a number of formal dinners during the year.
We also have a number of less formal social events ranging from barbeques to ladies only nights, to skittle competitions with neighbouring clubs, for up to date news on forthcoming events go to our What's New page on this site.
Our Twinned clubs are, in France, Vallee D'or and in Sri Lanka, Beruwala
2018 is a normal year for twinning, our French fellow lions visited us in May where the highlight of the weekend was a trip to Brooklands which included a Concorde simulation. Our reciprocal visit is in September. Next year we are all meeting up in Jersey.
Perhaps we are best known for our support of Santa Claus at Christmas time. Whether Santa is seeing children at the local Tesco supermarket or touring the Havant area on his sleigh in the cold dark evenings running up to Christmas, you will find him accompanied by a group of supporters from Havant Lions and thanks again to local people's generousity, gives us vital funds for giving.
Other Fund raising takes place throughout the year. Our Monster Bottle Raffle where 'Every ticket is a Winner' is a key money raiser, thanks to local people who donate a bottle of something when we go knocking. It is generally the most popular stall wherever we take it. We have supported many local events including "The Annual Emsworth Show", "Havant's Party in the Park", "Denmead's annual charity Cycle ride", "Leigh Park Carnival", and many others. Look out for us. If you would like to help or need more details please e-mail us.
Our giving represents all types of local community support ranging from individual cases of help when needed, to assisting the local badminton club in purchasing equipment for youngsters to progress to County and International standard, to providing sailing cognitive therapy day trips for disabled people.
Our activities extend to a range of social events and we take every opportunity to combine helping people with having some fun.
We enjoy splendid support from individuals and organisations in the local area. We are very grateful to all those that help us to help others.
