Listed below are a few recent examples of Lions at work in your community. These are by no means comprehensive, as many are private individuals and we would not wish to publish their names. Often relatively small amounts can make a significant difference to Farnham families lives. Such an example we received in November by way of a contact through this website and we thank Mrs S for her kind words and are delighted to have helped:

"I would like to thank the Farnham Lions for the support they have given me with regards my my little ones nursery fees and for the bus pass they have provided for my elder son. Without this help my life would be even more difficult than it is already is, and they have helped remove the relentless pressure of money worries. The Lions have helped me more this last year than my own family or the family of my children, so for this I am eternally grateful. Thank you so much Farnham Lions." Mrs S. (name and address supplied)

(to be completed)


In 2001 Farnham Lions provided Lionheart, a safety boat for Sailability, the sailing club at Frensham Ponds for sailors with disabilities. 14 seasons later and with over 1000 outings providing a safety net for the disabled sailors, Lionheart has been pensioned off as it is nearing the end of its useful life. Consequently Farnham Lions have replaced the original safety boat with Lionheart 2. Pictured below is the official launch on 30 April 2015 in time for the start of the new season. The new boat is a Rigiflex Nematic 400, which to quote the team at Sailability is the latest in design for safety vessels and a huge leap forward from Lionheart. We wish it a long life in service for Sailability at Frensham Pond and hope that it never really has to roar to anyones saviour.

Another presentation to Frensham Pond Sailability

Farnham Lions turned out in force to view the new fixed jetty at Frensham Big Pond on Thursday 27th October last and to present their contribution of £4000 towards the cost. Lion President Barbara was among the ladies who went for a lift. Fantastic new facility that we are delighted to assist with funding, and congratulations to all who made it happen at Frensham Ponds Sailing Club and Sailability. 

Brian is delighted with the donation

Farnham Boxing Club

Farnham Lions are proud to have helped with an initiative by the youth services of St Thomas on the Bourne to set up a boxing club in the Brambleton Hall. Lions' financial contribution helped with the provision of safety equipment in the form of protective headguards for the youngsters training at the Boxing Club. We are pleased to see that the Boxing Club is going from strength to strength and is meeting a need for young people in Farnham.
