Every Month

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. We donate food to the Ross Community Larder. Our main focus is on youth and sight related causes, but requests for help are always treated sensitively. We do not just raise funds, we are a Service Organisation and are always open suggestions of how we can help the Community as we did when we helped steward the Olympic Torch Relay and put on Fireworks for the Queen’s Jubilee.

Social Events

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.
