Welcome to Allendale Lions Club Website

For those of you who don't know, the Allendale Lions Club was formed in Autumn 2003 at a noisy meeting in the Golden Lion Hotel (some would say an obvious choice). Its formation was down to the vision and determination of Trevor Newman, our first president, who loved the job so much he held on to it for two years! Ten years on we remain a thirty-strong group who still have noisy meetings in The Golden Lion and derive lots of fun and satisfaction from what we do. And over these years we've raised over £95,000 to put back into the community.

Allendale Lions Club is a member of Lions Clubs International. Lions Clubs meet the needs of a growing number of local communities throughout  the world. There are currently more than 1.3 million members in 205 countries and, although geographic areas are different in many ways, we all share a core belief — community is what we make it.
