of the projects we have been involved in since our founding
in 1985 include:-
Providing a kiln for handicapped school children.
The purchase of an electric wheelchair for a "Down"
Helped in the rehabilitation of a family after fire had gutted
We obtained a second hand fire engine from U.K and had it shipped
and delivered to the volunteer fire brigade in Santiago del
The Lions have funded and overseen the provision of a fast response
rescue craft to be moored in the harbour of Los Gigantes and
crewed by the bombaros (local firemen), the harbour authorities and the local
doctor. It was named Sir Stanley Mathews in memory of one of
our club's most ardent supporters.Regrettably he was no longer
with us to do the launching.
Away from Tenerife, we have sent aid to Bosnian children, as
well as aid to flood victims in mainland Spain. We have hosted,
or helped parties of handicapped children from the U.K to have
memorable holidays here in Tenerife, and indeed Canarian ones
in the U.K.
The club meets twice a month. The second Thursday of
the month is a "Business" meeting. The fourth Thursday
is the "Directors" meeting.
Needless to say any visiting lions holidaying here will be most
welcome at the 2nd Thurdsay "Business" meeting email here: firstname.lastname@example.org with the dates of your visit and where you are staying and we
will send you details of how to get to the venue.
