Uckfield and District Lions club are extremely lucky to have Lion David Skinner as their Roar representative.

Lion David is the Multi district officer Roar officer working closely with 8 billion ideas to put on the National competition, which over several years has gone from strength to strength. He is also Roar District officer for 105se, along with being Uckfield Lions roar and mini roar officer.

After another well attended mini roar in Uckfield, David has received many testimonies saying how much they had enjoyed the event, a great credit to the time and enthusiasm Lion David puts into his roll.


The event was a real success! Thank you once again, the children had a wonderful experience. We thank the Lions again for providing such an enriched experience for our pupils to take part in. Many thanks Ewa Wilson Bonners primary school.

Hi David, Thanks to you (Lions). The children loved it. Jo Price Sir Henry Fermor Primary school.

 As always, I love this event. I panic when I must actually put marks to all the children’s amazing work, but to be with them, talk about them about their ideas and so much more is a special time. If you need me back, then it will be an honour. Jackie Love Mayor of Uckfield

 Thank you for organising the Mini ROAR competition. Year 5 loved the process and enjoyed making their own inventions. Thank you for the books as well – this year, our classes are named after various endangered animals so they will be well used. Jo Morrall Harlands Primary.

 It was a great pleasure to help judge the Mini Roar again.  The standard was so high, and I just love the enthusiasm of the children.  The teachers looked rather more apprehensive not surprisingly. Well done to you all for organising another successful Roar Best wishes and thank you for asking me. Jane King Immediate Past High Sheriff of East Sussex

 Thank you so much for the chance to participate in Lions Roar 23. The kids really enjoy it, and it teaches them so many valuable skills, not least of which is the ability to work as part of a team. Looking forward to next year. Many thanks. John Dutton Rocks Park Primary.

Our children absolutely loved it. Thank you for letting us be a part of this project. Jenni Orwin Fletching Primary

The opportunity to go to the Belmont centre and compete against other schools was a great privilege. Chris Pickford Little Horsted
