Burntwood Lions are a small club (currently 11 members) who rely on help from friends to raise thousands for charity each year. Lions guarantee that 100% of money raised for charity is used FOR CHARITY...admin costs are paid by members themselves or through events where WE TELL YOU it's for admin (only one quiz last year!).
Lions are the World's largest service club organisation with more than 45,000 clubs. Lions send money to other Lions in disaster areas and the LOCAL LIONS USE THE MONEY to provide e.g. tented camps (Haiti) and immediate help but they will continue to work when the disaster is out of the news, to build an orphanage in Haiti, for example.
Our main purpose is to help our own communities. In Burntwood there are many people in need of help - Lions might pay for a cooker or a drier, for example - and many local helping groups are feeling the effects of cutbacks and fewer contributions...Lions can help make up the shortfall. Join us.
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.
