Billingshurst & District Lions Club

Lions Successful “Drop In”
Billingshurst & District Lions Club was pleased to welcome a number of men and women at its first “Drop In” session at the Billingshurst Community Centre, on Friday, 20th January 2023. Visitors were given the opportunity to learn more about the Lions and the valuable work they do in the local community and to discuss their own ideas and experiences.
In addition to Billingshurst, the Club embraces Barns Green, Kirdford, Loxwood, Plaistow, Rudgwick, Slinfold and Wisborough Green. Billingshurst Lions are keen for more people to help, maybe as volunteers, in supporting the Lion’s motto, “We Serve”.
Many who came expressed a wish to be more involved with the community,
with opportunities helping in the Lions Charity Bookshop in Jengers Mead,
Community Service and Projects,
but, especially with Fund Raising including:-
Race Night on Saturday, 18th March,
proceeds shared between Scouts attending the 25th World Scout Jamboree 2023 in Korea
and Billingshurst Boxing Club
