Welcome



Hello, and thank you for your interest in our website.

The picture shows Club members with the Mayor and Mayoress of Gravesham in front of the recently re-named Lions House in Northfleet. Lions House was originally opened in 1992 as The Lion's Hospice, and now forms part of ellenor. This is only one of vary many local projects our Club has been involved with recently, many details of which are on this website.
Our club was formed over 40 years ago and we are very keen for new members to join us and help with our exciting programme of fundraising and service projects to the community and share in our social activities.

Please contact one of our membership team us if you would like to know more about us.

Community Service

Our work in the community locally, nationally and worldwide

Whilst the Ellenor Hospice continues to be one of the many beneficiaries of our fundraising activities, we have recently donated £5000 to equip and furnish the training room at the Alzheimer's and Dementia Support Services hub "Safeharbour" in Northfleet.
In addition to providing equipment, help and support to individuals, we regularly make donations to many local charities and organisations that are themselves providing vital and expert services, help and support to those less fortunate children and adults throughout our community.
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 worthwhile programme of community service activities and welfare projects.

We make annual donations to a Lions Clubs 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.

New York

The training room equiped and furnished by the club at the Alzheimer's and Dementia Support Services hub "Safeharbour" in Coldharbour Rd, Nothfleet. This room was equipped from a donation in excess of £ 5000 and is dedicated to a former stalwart Club member, Richard "Dick" Harris.

New York

Many local charities and organisations benefit from donations made every year at our annual "Presentation Evening". These donations, totalling over £6000, are mainly the proceeds from the very successful Christmas collections that the club undertakes around the streets of the community and at local stores.
