Our Mission Statement
” To empower volunteers to serve their communities, meet humanitarian needs, encourage peace and promote international understanding through Lions clubs “
Lions meet the needs of local communities and the world. Glantawe Lions Club believes that community is what we make it.
Glantawe Lions was founded in November 1973, since then we have been tirelessly serving those in need in the Swansea Valley.
Glantawe’s area stretches throughout the Swansea Valley, from Morriston in the South to Glyntawe and beyond in the North, taking in the communities of Llansamlet, Birchgrove, Glais, Ynystawe, Clydach, Trebanos, Craig Cefn Parc, Pontardawe, Rhyd y Fro, Godre’r Graig, Ystalyfera, Gurnos, Cwmtwrch, Ystradgynlais, Abercraf and Craig y Nos.
Being a member of Glantawe Lions offers the opportunity to volunteer around your lifestyle. If you can spare a few hours to lend a helping hand or want to develop your skills, Lions have the opportunities for you.
Volunteering with Glantawe Lions will not only help those in need but will give you a sense of pride and achievement.
We have raised thousands of pounds for our local community; we have also contributed towards international disaster appeals through Lions Clubs International.
We raise money through a range of events. We attend a number of local fetes, collections at supermarkets, race nights, psychic nights. In addition to this we host ‘Tree of Light’ each Christmas where the public can sponsor a light in memory of a loved one.
Each Christmas we supply and deliver in excess of 150 food hampers to families in need within our community.
None of the funds raised benefits our club or its members. Our members pay annual subscriptions and hold raffles at club meetings to cover our administration costs.
Glantawe Lions Club meets the first Wednesday of the month to plan projects and activities and the second Wednesday of the month to attend the club Business Meeting. We also hold a monthly social evening where a meal is organised to enable members to enjoy each others company.
Join us in making our communities and the world better places in which to live.
