The Lions Club of Jersey
The Lions Club of Jersey

The Lions Club of Jersey was chartered on 30th November 1963 and draws its members from every trade and profession and its current membership includes bankers, retailers, growers, IT professionals, civil and electronics engineers, writers, accountants, importers, surveyors and architects. The Club meets monthly and its members divide themselves into a number of sub-committees dealing with fund-raising, welfare, and social events.

The Lions’ prime function is to serve their local community and, thanks to the generosity of the people of Jersey, the Jersey Lions Club has distinguished itself as one of the most successful Lions Club fund-raisers in Britain. The best-known event with which our name is associated is the annual Lions Swimarathon. Visit to find out more.

Brown Bursary Project

The Lions Club of Jersey was the grateful recipient of funds from the estate of the late Mr Brown.

The funds have been set aside to enable the club to provide assistance or finance to those requests that would not normally fall within the Club's remit.

So if you know of a specific need which may not normally qualify for our support, there is a possibility that we can still help through the Brown Busary.



Spectacles For Re-cycling

Lions Club Internationally are committed to supporting eye care throughout the world. Good eyesight enables people to work and enjoy an independent life. The Jersey Lions Club collects old spectacles, which are sent off for re-cycling and eventual re-distribution through our optometrist clinics in the third world.  

Please drop off any unwanted, but serviceable spectacles (not sunglasses) to the La Collette Recycling Centre. We will then send them away and hopefully help someone in need.

Our History and background

LIONS CLUBS INTERNATIONAL was founded in 1917 in the United States by businessman Melvin Jones who felt that successful people like himself and his colleagues should devote some of the energies which had enabled them to succeed in business to serving their local communities. Appropriately he chose “We Serve” as the Lions’ motto.


Lions Clubs now exist in more than 170 countries and more than 2.5 million men and women wear the distinctive lapel pin.


The Lions Club of Jersey was formed in November 1963, at the instigation of the Lions Clubs of Southampton and St. Malo. Today, there are still eight members of the Jersey Lions Club who were among the founders.




Please be advised that we will never ask anyone to make any payment to secure a grant. Anyone contacting you by telephone, letter or online and offering a grant in exchange for a fee or advance payment is doing so fraudulently.
