Welcome to the Lions Clubs of Stowmarket and District and Bury St Edmunds. This website promotes the work we do in supporting local charities, local causes and individuals within our local community.

It also promotes businesses within our local community who support us through advertising on the website. Every penny we receive through advertising revenue goes to support the fund raising activities of the Lions Clubs of Stowmarmarket & District and Bury St Edmunds.

We have also created an online High Street where every purchase made through this website generates a commission and all that commission goes to St Nicholas Hospice Care.

Ollie Hatcher from Ipswich - completed the Lions 100 Km Challenge

"The Suffolk Villages bike ride was one of the best organised, signed and marshalled I have been on this year. Congratulations to everyone involved in giving their time in the run-up and on the day to ensure it ran so smoothly. I was on my own doing the 100k but rode at times with generously-spirited cyclists offering me their slip stream on some open windy stretches! It was a stunning route through beautiful villages and countryside with bananas and cakes just when needed. Thank you all"


Lion President Kev Parker and Elizabeth - CONGRATULATIONS on their 10th Wedding Anniversary
