Cranleigh and District Lions Club
The Cranleigh & District Lions Club was formed in 1974. Our members cover a wide age range with different professions, some now retired, all of whom joined to put something back into their local community. They achieve this, whilst at the same time, making new friends and enjoying the experience. It’s a credit to the growing Lions club in Cranleigh, that few leave the club and many have been members for more than a decade.
Our aim is primarily to support the less fortunate in our community and also support national and international Lions appeals and projects. We are members of Lions Clubs International, an international network of men and women who work together to answer the needs that challenge communities across the world. With over 46,000 clubs and over 1.4 million members we are part of the world’s largest service organisation.
Lions are ordinary people who do extraordinary things to help others and support good causes both locally and throughout the British Isles. Globally we have more volunteers in more places than any other service club organisation, and love to help others and make things happen. Because we are local, we serve the unique needs of the communities in which we live. As we are global, we can address community challenges wherever they occur.

Our aim is primarily to support the less fortunate in our community and also support national and international Lions appeals and projects.
We run a number of events during the year to raise money, which supports local charities and individuals. Each year we aim to donate around £50,000 to local causes and people.

Every penny we make from the events we run goes into the local community and Lions appeals and projects.
Cranleigh Lions have a monthly “business meeting” at the Cranleigh Village Sports & Social Club in Parsonage Road, where we discuss upcoming events and applications for support. Each event has a committee that organises and runs the event, relying on the other members as necessary.
It’s not all hard work though, we have regular social events throughout the year. Two of the biggest are “Charter Night”, which is a celebration of the forming of the Club and “Changeover Night”, where the new Club President takes over.
