Who we are
Calne Lions was formed on 12th June 1972 and we have held our Charter for over 50 years. We are part of the largest service organisation in the world, “The Association of Lions Clubs International”. We are Ordinary People doing Amazing Things and our motto is “We Serve”. We are a friendly group, with members of all ages from various walks of life. Despite our different backgrounds, we are all united in a shared passion to help our local community and beyond. In addition to a life committed to the service of our community and those in need, we enjoy an active social life.
We support many local causes and organisations – if you need help, complete our Contact Form.
We usually meet at 7:30pm at Beversbrook Sports Facility in Calne, on the first Tuesday of each month.

How we raise funds
Lions clubs help local communities in a number of different ways with all money collected going directly to good causes. Not one penny is spent on administration as Lions Club running costs are funded by its members.
Our much loved Duck Race runs every Spring.
Every December we hit the streets for our popular Santa Collection. Listen out for us, as we come down a street near you, collecting money and bringing a smile to the young and young at heart, in Calne.
Our newly refurbished Burger Van regularly attends local events in town, like the Bike Meet, Fireworks Display and Christmas Festival of Lights, serving up delicious burgers, hotdogs & chips and a range of hot and cold drinks.
