URGENT NOTIFICATION - In light of current Government advice, Shirley Carnival, due to take place on July 11th, has been cancelled. We know that this will be disappointing news for lots of people, but our responsibility is to try and keep people safe and well – as well as prevent any additional strain on our emergency services.

URGENT NOTIFICATION - We have today (13th March) received this message from the organisers of our Prostate Testing Event

After very careful consideration and following discussions with our medical advisers we’ve taken the difficult decision to temporarily suspend our PSA testing programme until the outcome of the current COVID-19 (Coronavirus) outbreak is known.
Whilst we don’t want to appear to be suffering a knee jerk reaction, we do have a set of fairly unusual factors affecting our work in that many of our organising groups…Masons, Lions and PCSG’s etc…are past the first flush of youth and in the case of the latter clearly have underlying health issues.  Add to that the average age of our attendees is probably 60+, and for many events are in close proximity to one another in sometimes fairly “cosy” situations,  lacking robust sanitization facilities, then the risks start to increase.
We also, of course, have a responsibility to our loyal team of nurses  and helpers.
We hope we’ll be able to rearrange events sooner rather than later….but these are unprecedented times…certainly during my lifetime."

Accordingly our own event due to take place on 18th April is cancelled

Pride in the Community


 From time to time we get asked "How can I make a donation to the Lions?"

Here is a form you can use which will also ensure we can claim the Gift Aid as well.

If you are new to Lionism, through these pages you will be able to find out about the work of the International organisation of Lions and our Lions Club in particular.

If you are a Lion, and perhaps planning to visit our area, we hope that the information on our website will encourage you to visit us. Please telephone 0345 833 9547 beforehand.

If you are not yet a Lion then please give us your skills, your time, your commitment and come and join us. We are people from all walks of life who support their local community through raising funds and making donations to a wide variety of organisations and individuals covering all ages and needs, whilst at the same time enjoying ourselves.

Any help is gratefully received - and hopefully you will enjoy the activity and then maybe join Shirley Lions.

Again just phone us on 0345 833 9547 or use the "Contact Us" page to find out more.

Calls to this number will be charged at a local call rate.
