Ilkeston Lions Club is a charity service organisation which helps our local community foremost, along with other charities.

This is done through raising money by having Easter Bunny raffles and Christmas food hampers in local pubs and businesses around the Erewash area, having stalls on the market place, the Summer Sounds event on Victoria Park, the Hospitals League of Friends summer and winter open days and others. Our main event is to organise and present the annual Ilkeston Lions Carnival.

ALL of the money we raise from these events is given to needy causes Locally, Nationally (eg; The recent flood appeals in Cumbria and York) and Internationally (eg; Earthquakes, Tsunamis etc.)

In order to keep doing all of this The Ilkeston Lions Club urgently needs more members. At present we have 13 members, 75% of which are over 65 years of age. As we are just starting to put plans together for next years carnival we need younger and fitter men and women to join in and help us.

Next year is the Lions International Centenial Celebration which we will be celebrating all over the world.

We are not all work and no play. We have various social evenings and we also interact with other local Lions club's with film nights, skittles and Charter dinner/dances etc.

If nobody comes forward to join us there is a chance that the club will have to close which means that there will be no more carnivals.
