The Lions Club of Brighton is part of a truly global service organisation with over 45,500 clubs and more than 1.35 million members in 205 countries around the world, Lions Clubs International.
We are dedicated to making our communities a better place to live, work and grow. With like-minded people we provide real change and create opportunities in our communities.
As the Lions Club of Brighton approaches the second anniversary of its charter, members can look back at a solid two years of fundraising and contribution to the community.
Using our super BBQ trailer, Lions have run BBQ’s for community groups and for organisations to raise funds for community activities. You may have seen us at the Brighton Civic Centre (opening of the Bypass and at Communities for Children), Brighton Community Market, Royal Hobart Regatta (wood-chopping) or Vodafone in Kingston, amongst other various places we have visited.
Lions fundraising often comes in partnership with another organisation, for instance staffing the entrances to the Royal Agricultural Show, Tasmanian Racing Club and the Hobart Sporting Car Club.
The Lions Club of Brighton is most proud of our work in producing the first Christmas Carols event in Brighton for many years.
Brighton Lions partnered with the Citywide Baptist Church, with assistance from Lions Club of Kingborough, Hazell Bros, Brighton Council and PDK Systems, to stage Christmas Carols at the Thompson Oval at Pontville late last year.
A crowd of close to 1000 backed by the Derwent Valley Concert Band, Twice Bitten and the Citywide Baptist Church Band sang popular Christmas carols into the evening. Entertainers from the Citywide Baptist Church led events for young people while the Brighton Fire Brigade delivered Santa and a huge bag of sweets!
Planning is already underway for Christmas Carols to return this year in mid December.
The Lions Club of Brighton is always looking for new members, the more we have the more we can do.
Membership involves attending a couple of meetings, paying a modest membership fee and then regular attendance at monthly meetings.
At Lions we make things happen. One more member gives us two more hands.

Members of the Lions Club of Brighton were invited help the Salvation Army at the Communities for Children – Safety Expo earlier this week in Bridgewater.
It was a great opportunity for our members to work with another well-respected service organisation.
Lions were asked to bring our BBQ trailer along to cook the BBQ that the Salvation Army was offering at the event and Lions were kept busy filling orders for all the usual BBQ products.
We are always keen to hear from others if there is a way we can assist. Feel free to contact us if there is a project you think we may be able to help with.
