About Thornbury Lions

Thornbury Lions

Thornbury Lions are having a busy and successful time.

The club has been in existence since 1987. Dursley Lions Club is our parent club and we started with 20 members, 3 of whom are still with us.

Lions are an International organisation and when we donate to International Disasters the money is passed direct to local Lions clubs who have local knowledge and no overheads.

Our Bookshop

Thornbury Lions

We have been running a charity bookshop since November 2011.

This is both enjoyable and provides us with a high profile in the community and has been the main driver to recruit new members.

Many volunteers who just love working with books come along to help.

We ask for small donations for our books especially our children’s books, which are always popular, and we are proud to think that we have increased the number of readers in the town and encouraged young children to read more.

Fundraising and Charity

We donate mainly to local good causes, concentrating on local schools and youth organisations.

Recently we have donated £3,000 to local youth groups and £1000 to the flooding appeal in Yorkshire.

Another recent contribution enabled Thornbury Town Council to install a defibrillator at the Armstrong Hall, as well as the one outside our bookshop.

Support for Local Events and Organisations

Thornbury Lions

We also find time to organise an annual Senior Citizens Christmas Dinner and still help Father Christmas.

We help out with the Thornbury Carnival every year, providing marshals for road closures and helping with the organisation generally.

Thornbury Lions support local drama and encourage younger people to get involved. We have for many years supported the annual Thornbury Youth Eisteddfod competition with donations and also cups.

In 2014 the Eisteddfod held a special Jubilee Concert to celebrate 25 years, which we sponsored.

Past competitors returned and performed, many of whom were following a career in music. We are proud to have helped in a small way their careers.

We also sponsored a Skate Fest at the local skate park.

We are regular contributors to Thornbury in Bloom and Thornbury Christmas Lights Association, both of which enhance our local community.
