“These young people are looking for a more informal approach and want to make things happen themselves.

Our “Young Lions” initiative will allow the group to decide what they want to support and how they want to raise funds.

“Under the banner of Bexhill Lions Club we will provide mentorship, guidance and support.

“This initial meeting will allow them to discuss amongst themselves how they would like the group to develop.

“There is no obligation to join the Bexhill Lions, so just come along and see what you think.

“This is an exciting opportunity for the group to make a difference, have fun, meet new friends and develop their skills.

We look forward to seeing many new faces at the meeting.”
