Whitby District Lions Club

Whitby District Lions Club has proudly served Whitby and the surrounding communities
since 1970. The club is part of a network of other clubs around the country and worldwide
that make up Lions International. Our 1.35 million members who perform community
service in 209 countries, share a core belief “We Serve” which demonstrates our members
determination to help people less fortunate than ourselves and support our communities.


During in 2017 alone Whitby Lions donated £11,500.00 to local charities and good causes.
They range from a variety of excellent local charities such as Whitby Wish, The Friends of
Pannett Park, Whitby Wildlife, Whitby District Scouts and Guides, Whitby RNLI, St Catherin’s
Hospice, The Eskdale Festival of Arts to Wetwheels Yorkshire. We also support many local
activities of some larger national charities such as Parkinson’s UK, British Heart Foundation,
Cancer and Research UK. Some of the projects that we are involved in and donate to have
gone to help buy and install defibrillators in Pannett Park and around the town, helping
towards the cost of running the scout hall in Whitby to giving disabled children the
opportunity to enjoy an action-packed weekend away.


100% of the money the club raises through the Colour Run and our other events is donated
directly to the charities, meaning our club resources are a vital funding pot that can be easily
accessed without going through complicated grant application routes. The club’s
administration costs are covered by our members who pay a modest membership fee each
year.
