LIONS CLUB INTERNATIONAL

SANTIAGO DEL TEIDE

Distrito 116-B España

 

 

Our club is only a little over 12 years old and therefore young, in the worldwide family of clubs, that is The Lions.

Nevertheless, in this relatively short time we have demonstrated that the motto of "We Serve" is being followed to the letter.

Fiscal identity No: G - 38 393 054

Some 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" syndrome child.

Helped in the rehabilitation of a family after fire had gutted their home
We obtained a second hand fire engine from U.K and had it shipped and delivered to the volunteer fire brigade in Santiago del Teide.

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: lionsclubsinternational@losgigantes.com with the dates of your visit and where you are staying and we will send you details of how to get to the venue.
