As many of you know all profits from Lions events are put back into good causes within the local community, many of you will have received donations from Lions in the past.

July or August
During the month of May, Uckfield residents, community groups & businesses are invited to build & display scarecrows on their property. The scarecrows are judged at the end of the month & the finalists invited to the Uckfield Lions Big Fun Day held on Luxford Field on the first Sunday in June, to receive their prizes. A great oportunity for all the family to get involved to create their unique scarecrow.
In 2003 Uckfield Lions held their first Classic Car rally. The event, held in September each year, is now a major day in the Lion’s calendar. Meeting at about 10am at The Half Way House Inn on the Lewes Road, Uckfield, & after a cup of coffee, the cars then undertake a pictorial run around the Kent & Sussex countryside of about 50 miles to finish back at the Halfway House Inn for lunch. There is also an arranged coffee stop on the route for those who wish to stop.
All the classic cars are parked in the field behind the pub where owners & visitors can meet & view the cars. A pig roast is then available together with a refreshing drink from the bar.
Proceeds each year raise money for a nominated charity
The Lions Santa Sleigh tours Uckfield & surrounding villages throughout December & is in Olives Yard, just off Uckfield High Street on Late Night Shopping. Money raised goes towards supporting various charities & good causes. Santa gives out presents to all the young children who come out to see him.
