About the Lions

Lions Clubs are a global network of volunteers working together to make a difference.

Kindness Matters
When caring people join together, roll up their sleeves and take action to make their community better, it’s a beautiful thing—and an incredible feeling for everyone involved. That’s Lions. Being a Lion is about leading by example, building relationships and improving the world through kindness.
It’s 1.4 million caring men and women serving together so they can make a lasting impact and change more lives.

Ross on Wye Lions
As volunteers, Ross Lions are people of all ages and backgrounds who join together to help the Community.

The pages on this website will show some of the main projects that have happened recently as well as showcase some of the great tradition that Ross Lions have built up. As a respected part of the Community, people know where to turn if they need help or if they want to be part of that and join the Club.

Message in a Bottle

The Lions Message In a Bottle scheme is a simple idea designed to encourage people to keep their personal and medical details on a standard form and in a common location – the Fridge. Whilst it is focused on the more vulnerable people in our community, anyone can have an accident at home, so this scheme can benefit anyone, including you.


Recycle for Sight

According to The World Health Organization, 153 million people have uncorrected refractive errors (near-sightedness, far-sightedness or astigmatism). Most of these vision impairments are quickly diagnosed and easy to treat with corrective lenses.


Our annual Events


Lions meet regularly to discuss requests for their support. The Club helps a large variety of good causes, such as individuals who need funding for equipment, families in troubled circumstances who need a holiday, groups who work locally and medical charities. 


Ross Lions know that we need to work together and also have fun together, so we have regular social events from a formal Dinner and Dance to a very informal meet-up for drinks or coffee.
