'Having decided I wanted to put back into the community that had given me and my now grown-up children so much, I searched online for volunteer groups and I was overwhelmed with the Lions’ commitment and what they do unselfishly to help the local people of Witney.'
New member Lynn
Interested in joining Lions?
Why should I join?
You'll get an opportunity to make new friends as we work and serve the local community; you'll meet lots of people in Witney and the surrounding villages.
You will be able to involve the whole family; your spouse or children can come to the Witney Carnival and help out, or join you at any of our social functions. Your spouse would also be very welcome helping out with our Christmas float and static collections.
We can give you the chance to become involved in local fundraising initiatives and progress to running one of the clubs committees when you feel confident to do it. The choice of what and how much you do is down to you. We organise and get involved in a wide variety of fundraising events and activities to help the local needy.
Friends of Lions
We have a number of people at present who are Friends of Lions, these may be ex-members, or the family of ex-members. For a variety of work or personal reasons, they feel unable to be full members of the club, but still like to help out on occasion and attend some social functions. Others have never joined the club, but again want to help out in their local community. Friends of Lions do not pay membership fees or have voting rights, but are very welcome in the club.
How do I join?
The first step to joining Witney Lions is to click on the link below for more information. We can then arrange for you to meet up with a few of our members for an informal chat to give you more information about becoming a member.
One of the best ways is to come along to one of our regular monthly business meetings, which are held on the second Monday of the month at The Blue Boar in Witney at 7.30 pm.
