Events and Fundraising

Knaresborough Lions’ events and activities are the way we raise money to support charities and other good causes. Our activities take place through the year, and include the Great Knaresborough Bed Race in June (such a big event that we start planning it in the autumn beforehand), the Lions Beer Festival (held as part of Knaresborough’s Festival of Entertainment and Visual Arts, feva) in August, helping to run the Knaresborough Christmas Market, where we also serve mulled wine, and taking Santa around the streets with his sleigh in the weeks leading up to Christmas.

Through these events we aim to bring enjoyment to the local community while at the same time raising funds for the causes we support, both locally and internationally. Our continued success is thanks to the kindness of local people, without whose tremendous support and generous donations we could not do what we do.
