Hi everyone.

Thank you for your interest in our web site.  The picture below was taken when the club celebrated 50 years of work in our community of Northfleet, Ebbsfleet, Swanscombe and Greenhithe. During that time the Lions have raised thousands of pounds and supported numerous projects and good causes which help those in our community, and internationally,  to have better life experiences.

Following there are details of how you too could give help and support by participating in some of the fund raising events in our exciting 2023 programme.

The page will be updated from time to time with new projects but we can always do with your input and please do consider joining your Local Lions Club. We always need new members and if, at present, you are not able to commit to full membership we always need volunteers to help at our fund raising events. A good way to meet others too.

Many thanks,

Lesley. (President, Northfleet and Ebbsfleet Lions)

Community Service

Our work in the community locally, nationally and worldwide


Our successful fundraising activities enable us to assist many local charities and organisations who themselves provide vital and expert services to those less fortunate children and adults throughout our community.


‘We are Beams’ Supporting disabled children, young people and their families.

Alzheimer’s and Dementia Support Services

Enabling those who live with dementia to live well


Kent Association for Spina Bifida & Hydrocephalus’

Providing services to people with physical and/or learning disabilities and supporting them towards independence


Dartford and Gravesham PHAB club

Bringing disabled and non-disabled children, young people and adults together with friends and family for all kinds of activities and social events


Waterside Parents Centre

Providing a wide range of supportive services for parents with babies and pre-school children and offering advice and guidance to ensure a happy family life


Helen Allison School

Bringing out the best in children on the autism spectrum, enabling each child to reach their full potential.



A specialist palliative care provider for adults and children, within their hospice inpatient ward or at home.  



In addition to the above we have supported local foodbanks, a homeless hostel and assisted with the purchase of a mobile sensory unit for the children’s wards at Darent Valley Hospital.


It is only with the very generous support of local businesses and the general public that we are fortunate enough to be able to complete such a full and varied programme of community service activities and welfare projects.


We make annual donations to a Lions International Aid Fund which responds to major disasters that occur throughout the world such as tsunamis, earthquakes and floods etc. This support is often carried out via our links with local Lions clubs situated in those particular areas of need. 

We often support these appeals by way of bucket collections at a very friendly local supermarket.


Together with the other Lions clubs in the South East we regularly fund items of equipment for the Kent, Surrey and Sussex Air Ambulance Charity and we have embarked on an appeal to raise £5000 to help provide 6 hand held Ultra Sound units and 20 new Medical Kits.



Please donate to our general Charity Fund

Help us to continue the type of valuable work detailed here


It costs you nothing on top of the donation, we receive all of the money and if you are a UK taxpayer you can register for Gift Aid when we acknowledge your donation and we receive an extra 25% on top of your donation from the Government.


Thank you !!
