Founded in 1977 as Farningham and District Lions, S&ND serves the towns and
villages along Kent's North Downs. raising funds locally and meeting requests for
help from organisations and individuals, giving preference to those within our
catchment area. The ‘lions’ share is dedicated to
the local hospice
service, caring for adults, children - and their families - and based on Lions House,
Gravesend, which the club helped to found.
Our regular fund-raising activities include a Sponsored Walk in the Kent
countryside in the Spring; a Golf Day in June, ‘Bike around Brands' on a Friday
evening in August and regular Quiz Evenings. We also 'shake a bucket' at local
shopping centres each Christmas and take carols and Santa Claus to the streets of
our towns and villages.
