About Us

Selsey lionBased in Selsey, West Sussex, we are one of over 700 clubs in the UK dedicated to providing a service to their local communities.

We are part of Lions Clubs International which was founded in Chicago, Illinois, USA in 1917 by insurance agent Melvin Jones and others. Lions are members of community service clubs, dedicated to the idea that the men and women who live in a community are in the best position to know who needs help and why, this is our ethos.

More than 43,000 strong, these local clubs are part of the world's largest such organisation, with 1.4 million members serving in more than 180 countries across the globe. The association is both non-political and non-sectarian.

Selsey Lions Club was formed in 1975 and has gone from strength to strength. We have a team of 17 men and women from our local community, and are always keen to welcome new members. Over the years we have built up a strong record of service to the local community and our members are often seen helping with local events as stewards, assisting local charities with their fundraising events and running our own fundraisers. We are well known in the town for the ever popular "Christmas Santa Float" a sight to behold, which tours Selsey and the surrounding villages throughout December bringing seasons greetings to one and all.

We have fun and enjoy being involved. As well raising money for the extensive list of help and assistance we give the community, we have an excellent members social program of events throughout the year.
