Thanks to our volunteers, Chipping Sodbury and Yate St John Ambulance division has been supplying First Aid to local events for several years, from a variety of Athletics at Yate Outdoor Sports Complex to Horton fell runs, Gymkhanas, carnivals and Heritage events.
Providing this vital First Aid is a rewarding and often challenging experience. St John Ambulance as an organisation has helped Badgers, Cadets and Adults to achieve many social and fundamental life skills. Its members are vital to the organisation and in return; members achieve qualifications and confidence and a whole new network of friends.
Members raise funds for charitable causes, enjoy a great social life, have fun and gain fellowship with other Lions clubs. Members come from all walks of life and across a large age range.
Chipping Sodbury Lions Club provides direct service to our community by events such as the Chipping Sodbury Street Fair & Carnival, Christmas Santa Claus float, Golf Day and Carol Concert.
We meet at Shireway Club every 2nd Thursday of the month at 8pm. Now looking for new members/helpers. Please click below or call Tony on 01454 319298 for more information.
