Buxton and District Lions Club support many activities and projects to raise funds to assist individuals and organisations within the Buxton and District community.
Once again we have been involved with The Buxton Carnival in helping to run this years Duck Race and thank everyone for their support in running this event. The 2017 Duck Race was a great
success, breaking records in attendance along with "Big Duck" who came to support his racing friends. In fact "Big Duck was donated by a little boy who came and visited our stand. Thanks
to everyone in our community for their generosity as all 2000 racing ducks were sold.
Buxton & District Lions have raised thousands of pounds for local charities as well as performing many hours of community service. Meetings are held twice a
month, details in the club progamme page shown above. The 2nd Thursday of each month is a business meeting where we update each other on what we have been doing and the 4th Friday is where we all sit
down with our wives to enjoy a pleasant meal at the Cavendish Golf Club. As a member, you pay a subscription of just £5 a month to cover the administration costs, so that everything that you
raise from your activities goes back into the local community. So why not contact us or come and help us with some of our future events. we always need help.
Married to Elaine for many years our involvement with the Lions has given us many happy memories and helped us make good friends from our work in the local community.
So if you are interested just send me an email and I will be pleased to take you to one of our meetings or get you to join in with one of our events so that you can see and experience what the Lions
do in Buxton.
I am looking forward to hearing from you and meeting you soon.
