Young Leaders in Service


Stowmarket Lions are on the hunt for community-minded young men and women between the ages of 11 and 18 who run or help to run a youth organisation, group or club in the Stowmarket area.  If you are, or know of such a person, Stowmarket Lions are introducing the Lion’s Young Leaders in Service Award scheme and would like to invite you to a presentation evening to be held at the Stowmarket Rugby Club where we will be outlining the new scheme.  If you are unable to come to the presentation, you can e-mail us at

The Young Leaders in Service scheme seeks to recognise and encourage young people in the Stowmarket area who are, or want to, make a difference in our local community.  There are two levels of award, Silver for a young person who volunteers 50 hours in a 12 month period and Gold for a young person who volunteers 100 hours in a 12 month period.

The scheme is designed to give recognition and something back to young people at a time when there are a lot of negative perceptions of young people.  An award such as this on a C.V. can be a significant boost when applying for university places or career opportunities.
