Banbury Lions Club are pleased to support both local, national and international projects and causes.

Two of the clubs national projects are 'Message in a Bottle' and 'Message in a Wallet'.

We have also supplied and installed four Lions Community Defibrillators.

We also work with the Local Cheshire Home at Agnes Court and have previously organised local Diabetes Screening.

A message from Riding for the Disabled Association (RDA)


"I am writing to say how grateful we all are to Banbury Lions for their continuing support of Henry at the Stratford upon Avon RDA group.

Henry loves his trips to Compton Verney and he has made such great progress since starting at RDA. This has not just been about his riding because RDA has also really helped with his confidence, concentration and his ability to follow instructions.  

RDA is such an amazing organization and all of the volunteers are so knowledgeable, passionate and committed. They make riding such a positive and important part of Henry's week.

I asked Henry what he enjoyed most about riding and of course he said Jessie, his pony! And he loves being able to go outside the riding school for hacks when the weather allows and "going fast!" when he practices his trotting. "

Diabetes Screening 2017

On Sunday 16th July 2017, we hired the Banbury town hall for a couple of hours to offer FREE screening. Clare and Sue from Lloyds Pharmacy came along and tested 34 people - most of whom were given the all clear, but there were a couple who were invited to go through a more detailed check. We need to raise awareness of this very important issue - click here, or do please feel free to contact us with any questions.


We may run another event soon - keep checking back for details.
