Gillingham, Mere, Shaftesbury Lions was chartered in 1979. We might be a small club, but we support a wide range of good causes and projects in our area.  Age isn’t a barrier to becoming involved. Presently the age span of our membership is from 23-80.  Everyday Lions are having fun by organising remarkable and memorable fundraising activities – with every penny raised going direct to good causes.

There is also a social side to our club. Nights out, quizzes, meals, many social events.
