Who Are Lions Clubs International?
Who We Are
Over 1.3 million ordinary men and women in over 205 countries and geographic areas around the world, meet in Clubs to have some fun and help those less fortunate than themselves.
We are part of this movement – Lions Clubs International
What types of Clubs are there
In our District we have some Lions Clubs open to men and women while some are just for men. In addition we have lady only Clubs, the Lionesses and for the younger members of the community we have the Leos. So however you like to get together there is sure to be a Club to met your requirements.
Great Britain and Ireland are split into a series of Districts in our case we are in East Anglia. Each District is further sub-divided into Regions.
What are our main aims
All Clubs agree to abide by the Code of Ethics and Purposes of Lions Clubs International. Having said that each Club tends to run its own affairs to meet the needs of its own local community.
To find our more why not visit a Club near you.
The Social Side
Clubs in our District arrange social events throughout the year. There is no obligation on Members to join in but they generally do.
Clubs like to celebrate their founding with a Charter Night – a form of birthday party – which may be a dinner dance or possibly a simple get together in a pub.
What We Offer
We offer our members good fellowship – one Club does not look for new members but new friends. This sums up how all our Clubs operate.
The Caring Side
We help those less fortunate than ourselves. In order to do this we raise money to make donations to worthy causes.
Many of our Clubs also have a “hands on approach, this may mean digging a garden, helping to decorate an old persons bathroom etc.
To cover our administration costs and dues to the central organisation we pay a small subscription and arrange sponsorships from local businesses.
NO money collected from the Public can be spent to the advantage of the Lions
We believe that our Member’s families and work must come before the needs of the Lions Clubs.
