Hayling Island Lions
Hayling Island Jubilee Celebration: 4th June 2022
The Lions are also planning an amazing free fun day for the island for the Jubilee with fancy dress competitions, the donkey derby, bouncy castles, live music, entertainers, donkey rides, picnic areas. There will also be stalls and refreshments where you can buy items.
Hi-Fest 2022 is coming to Hayling this Summer!
Following the success of Hi-Fest 21 despite COVID , the organisers of Hayling Islands own music festival expect this increasingly popular event to be better than ever this year.
Taking place between the 22nd and 24th July there will be music at even more venues across the Island as well at the Community Centre on the Friday evening.
Once again the festival charity is the Hayling Island Lions whose work with the local community benefits from all contributions.
Things We Do At Hayling Lions
Our Amazing Charity Shop
Our shop on Elm Grove is our hub in the community. It is staffed by our amazing volunteers who run the shop.
The opening times are
- Tuesday 10 to 4
- Thursday 10 to 4
- Friday 10 to 4
- Saturday 10 to 1
If you have spectacles you no longer need
Please bring them to the shop on Elm Grove.
We will take them to our partners who will clean your glasses and grade them so that they can be shared with needy people in the developing parts of the world, so that your eyeglasses can continue to provide benefit to others.
Prostate Cancer Screening
Many of you will know that we used to hold screening days at the community centre to help many men on the Island have a simple blood test to see if they were at risk from prostate cancer, which develops silently but can will develop in 1 in 8 men.
You can now get a PSA test from your GP if you are over 50 and ask for a test and just ask for the test.
We are not planning to run those sessions again.
Message in a bottle
The Lions fund these bottles in which you can place important medical information and your current prescription list, so that if an ambulance calls to help you in an emergency, they know to look in your fridge for this bottle, which can help them and the hospital doctors look after you more appropriately.
You can pick them up from our shop on Elm Grove, at the GPs and at the pharmacies.
