Plans on the ta­ble for new pride of Li­ons

Kentish Express Ashford & District - - Shedding The Pounds -

A meet­ing to dis­cuss the pos­si­bil­ity of launch­ing a new Li­ons Club in Ash­ford takes place later this month.

Li­ons Clubs In­ter­na­tional is the largest ser­vices club or­gan­i­sa­tion in the world, with 17,000 ac­tive mem­bers be­long­ing to 900 clubs lo­cated through­out the Bri­tish Isles and Ire­land.

Each club supports a range of com­mu­nity projects, in­clud­ing health and youth ini­tia­tives and help for the el­derly and dis­abled.

Funds are raised through a whole range of events, and clubs hold monthly meet­ings and reg­u­lar so­cial events.

Vol­un­teer­ing not only helps those in need, but also gives mem­bers a sense of pride and ac­com­plish­ment.

The new club is look­ing for mem­bers.

There will also be a Li­ons stall in County Square, Ash­ford, on Satur­day.
