The Lions Muddy Fun Run 2023
was the Club's third time to stage the event. Held in late August 2023, like previous events it was very popular with nearly 500 people participating and raised over £7,000. The 3.5km course was set across the beautiful Jersey countryside near La Hougue Bie. Runners overcame challenging obstacles and lots of "gooey" mud as they endeavoured to cross the finish line wth huge smiles on their faces.

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.

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.
