Be Part of It
In 1779 the World Famous Bridge in the centre of Ironbridge was built by Abraham Darby III. He made history as this was the first bridge ever to be built of iron.
200 years later Lions Clubs International granted Ironbridge & Severn Gorge Lions their Charter.
The Lions in Ironbridge have a long and loving relationship with the bridge (they use it for a regular fund raiser). In this Olympic year they have joined forces with the Ironbridge Gorge Museum Trust (Educational Charitable Trust no 503717-R) and will act as tourist guides at the Iron Bridge Tollhouse whist carrying out their “Silver over the Bridge” fundraiser throughout the summer months.
In recognition of this ALL Lions Members of MD105 are offered a unique Olympic year discount of 20.12% at all of Ironbridge’s 10 museum sites.
To get your discount just e-mail Ironbridge and Severn Gorge Lions on Ironbridgelions2009@hotmail.co.uk with mailing details and a voucher will be sent to you in the post.
