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 Swimarathon. Visit to find out more.

The Swimarathon fund raiser

The Swimarathon is one of the largest fundraising events in Jersey.


It started in 1972 and has raised over £3.3m since then. We are delighted with how the event has become a community event with schools, corporate, club, charity and family teams taking part.


We are very grateful for the continuing support of RBC Wealth Management for this event.

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.
