The Weston-super-Mare Lions are a branch of the Lions Clubs International, established in 1917. A charity organisation that is committed to providing care in the community through service and fundraising.

The Weston-super-Mare club was started by Bryan Fowler in 1968 and has grown in strength year by year.  Bryan sadly passed away in 2020 but his memory and passion in the Lions lives on in the club

What the Lions Do

Each and every Lion participates in the activities they are comfortable with.  We have octogenarians and 21 year olds with each finding a role that they’re comfortable with ranging from getting sponsors to building obstacles for the ‘Mud Master OCR’.  Nobody is forced to do anything and we have a very amicable relationship with each other. 

Every first Monday of the month with a few exceptions meet up for a meal.  This is paid for out of our subscription. 

The third Monday of each month we then get together for a business meeting to decide what events are on, how to man them.  Recently past events are also brought up to talk about cost and the finally we talk about the money; what we’ve taken during the last month and also how we distribute it.  

Every penny profit that is taken on any event goes to charity, the Lions take nothing and pay for their own meals, travel and expenses.

Upcoming Weston-super-Mare Lions Events

Throughout the year, the Lions hold many events involving a few to many people.  When the Weston-super-Mare Lions cannot utilise enough people from within the club we recruit personnel from other charities.

This project was set up in 2012 by Weston-super-Mare Lions Club and the Weston Mercury. Its mission is to provide financial support to organisations and individuals which promote activity in people under the age of 18. When GoKidsGo was last able to proceed in 2019, 21 grants were awarded, from 58 applications. Grants ranged from £200 to £1,800.

Our mission is to make a positive change to the lives of children and young people in this area. We need to ensure all the projects we fund help us to achieve this. Your application will be judged by a panel drawn from our sponsors. Please read these guidelines to ensure a grant from Go Kids Go! is appropriate for your needs.

We will only consider giving grants under the following terms and conditions:

  • Your organisation and project must be based within postcodes BS22, 23, 24, 25 or 29.
  • You must be a registered club, charity or other not-for-profit organisation, set up to encourage activity in children.

Applications fall under two categories:

  1. Sport
  2. Other
    (Theatre or drama groups, music groups, scouts and girl guiding groups, youth clubs, gardening clubs community clubs or other organisations which promote activity and social interaction in children.)

Our focus is firmly on children and young people. We will examine grant applications from organisations that encourage young people to get involved in sporting, cultural and community activities, where additional funds will improve the facilities for those taking part.

Examples of grants which have been successful are:

  • New training equipment.
  • Kit, tools, shirts, balls, bats etc.
  • Playground equipment.

We will not consider grants for:

  • Relief of statutory responsibility.
  • Applications from local government (except school associated) or NHS bodies.
  • The promotion of religion.
  • Medical treatment/research.
  • Bursaries, sponsored places, fees or equivalent.
  • General appeals or endowment funds.
  • Deficit funding or repayment of loans.

Yes, everyone over the age of 18, no matter what creed or colour you can join if you are over 18.

There isn’t a joining fee but a monthly fee of £7 for those on lower incomes or £34 for all others is payable monthly.

The extra £27 covers the cost of the meals and those paying £7 can pay extra to join in with the meal if they desire.  

Any meals that a Lion doesn’t attend gets the money back for that specific meal at the end of the year.

We hope that all members have an active role in most activities but there is no pressure to do any events that aren’t suitable

There are several different dress codes for different events; Diner suit for casino evenings, Lions jumper or Polo shirt for some events and Tabards for others.
