It is with sadness that we have to announce that we will be unable to do our annual plant sales this year.
The current climate is such that we cannot put you or ourselves at risk.
That does not mean that you cannot contact us if you need support or help.

A CHANCE TO PROMOTE AND FUND RAISE FOR YOUR ORGANISATION AT OUR DUCK RACE
The Kingswinford and Stourbridge Lions Club is holding its annual Duck Race on the afternoon of Sunday 7th June 2020 on the playing fields, off Kinver Steet, Wordsley.
We invite you to take part with a free stall as part of the Lion’s initiative to support local charities. Taking part will also help to make the event a success and support Lions in their efforts to work with the local community.Further details of the event will be circulated nearer the date but please contact us (email@example.com) now if you want to reserve a free pitch for your organisation.
With the coverage of the Bushfires in Australia over the last weeks we are all aware of the devastation caused by the flames and then smoke caused. Fellow Lions and the Lions Club International Foundation have been able to assist. This short video will give you some idea of what they have been able to do here.
What a pleasure is has been to award and present many charities and causes with donations from our annual Santa’s Sleigh. The presentation evening took place on the 31st January 2020 with Counsellors Karen Shakespeare and Les Jones at the Stourbridge Institute.
Well, Santa has fitted in his last Sleigh run for us today. He’s managed a marathon of 12 runs around the area and seen an estimated 700 children.
Santa would like to say a huge thank you to everyone who has supported him again this year, it has been great to see so many people out in support – it is why he likes to help us – and has promised that he will be available next year.
With a huge thanks to everyone involved.
Santa is finalising his Christmas preparations for 2019. Before he heads back to the Northpole, to ensure that all the presents are wrapped, labelled and ticked off against the many Christmas lists that he’s received over the past year, he is going to help us do three more Sleigh runs around Kingswinford and Stourbridge.
Look out for him on Friday in High Acres, he’s in and around Penfields on Saturday and his final run with us is around Charterfields & Blandford Mere on Sunday. Start times are: 6 pm on Friday and 4 pm on Saturday and Sunday.
Route details are here.
Santa is looking forward to seeing you all!

Kingswinford & Stourbridge Lions would also like to say a huge thank you to everyone who supported their annual bedding plant sale again this year, their 8th year, and helped them to raise another wonderful amount of over £1000 which will go towards helping other local charities and good causes in the future.
We have had so much great support over the last few days, catering at two schools and then the Netherton Fun day. We topped it with a fantastic turnout at the Stourbridge Carnival on Sunday. Thank you for all of your support.
At their canal fun day and duck race, Kingswinford & Stourbridge Lions Club combined their fund raising with a great day out for local families. The Event was held on 9th June on the playing fields adjacent to Wordsley Canal Junction. As well as the main event of racing ducks from the lock, there was canoeing, boat trips and stalls representing various local charities.
Proceeds from the race and food sales will go to one of the Lions current charities, Papyrus
which works to prevent teenage suicides and the event has also helped the other charities attending to promote their efforts and raise funds.
