Welcome to Tring Lions Club

Representatives from Tring School recently attended one of our meetings and made a presentation on their World Challenge expedition to Belize in 2017 and their plans for Sri Lanka in 2018. In Belize the pupils helped build a shelter adjacent to a small community clinic, they will be involved in a similar project during their Sri Lanka expedition.
The Lions have offered their support for  both projects.
