Peterborough Lions Club will shortly be hosting the annual District Convention for Lions Clubs from East Anglia. The event will see around 300 Lions Club members and their partners from Cambridgeshire, Essex, Norfolk and Suffolk gather at the Holiday Inn Peterborough West from 12-15 March.

The event will include social functions such as a partners visit to Burghley House for a guided tour, a themed party night, and a formal banquet and ball, as well as a full day convention on the Saturday which will be chaired by District Governor Kevin Rodgers from Wisbech Lions Club.

All the clubs in attendance are a part of Lions Clubs International, the world’s largest service club organisation. Founded in 1917, it has over 1.3 million members worldwide and is best known globally for its work in trying to prevent blindness and assist the visually impaired. Each club also volunteers and raises funds for local community projects and in recent years Peterborough Lions has supported Peterborough Association for the Blind, Special Care Baby Unit, and Music and The Deaf Youth Orchestra, as well as provision of a community minibus for local charity or welfare use.
