Tawa Lions Club

021 536 290

Grasslees Reserve Luckie Street, Tawa, Wellington, New Zealand


The Lions Club of Tawa was chartered on 16 February 1966 and currently has a membership of more than 28 members. Our club is a mixed-gender club from Young to Young at Heart and our objective is to serve the Tawa community by upholding the principles on which Lions Clubs International was founded.

Tawa is the northernmost, friendly community in Wellington, the nation’s capital city. The area is predominantly residential with associated shopping and service facilities, good schooling and light to medium industry.

An important part of serving the community is fundraising. Our weekly Saturday Tawa Lions Market at Outlet City, 24 Main Road,Tawa from 9 am to 2 pm is our main source of funds.

Since its inception in 2006, the Saturday Market has raised more than $300,000. This has enabled the Tawa Lions Trust to make many donations, including a major contribution of $30,000 towards the new Wellington Ronald McDonald House, which opened in 2012.

In addition, we organise and run the annual Tawa Lions Christmas Parade, bringing together many local organisations and groups to participate in the parade.

Other regular activities include collecting for Street Appeals, driving the disabled for the Whitford Brown Trust, selling our renowned Lions Christmas cakes, and collecting used Batteries, wine bottle tops, and other aluminum, for recycling and eyeglasses for refurbishing and sending up to the Pacific Islands.

Our Tawa Lions Saturday Market is open every Saturday except Christmas Day and New Year's Day, under Orange and Green Covid Levels. We have a full range of vegetables, eggs, and honey. Car boot sales welcome.

Lions Clubs International is the world's largest service club organization with more than 1.4 million members in approximately 46,000 clubs in more than 200 countries and geographical areas around the world.
