LIONS CLUBS INTERNATIONAL
"To create and foster a spirit of understanding among all people for humanitarian needs
by providing voluntary services through community involvement and international cooperation."
Founded in 1917 by Melvin Jones the association of Lions Clubs has provided millions of people around the globe with the opportunity to give something back to their local communities.
Known for fighting blindness, we also volunteer for many different kinds of community and humanitarian projects – including caring for the environment, feeding the hungry, providing help and support where natural disasters occur funding worldwide health initiatives and aiding seniors and the disabled.
Lions are an international network of about 1.35 million men and women in over 206 countries and 46000 clubs who work together to answer the needs that challenge Communities around the world.
There are about 850 clubs in the UK Lions participate in a vast variety of projects important to their communities. And supporting those less fortunate all around the world.

What do Lions do around the world and in our local area?
Lions Clubs help local communities in a number of ways. In towns, villages and cities near you. In hospitals, schools and community centres. In places battered by natural disasters and where people need us, Lions can be found helping, leading, planning and supporting. Because we are local, we serve the unique needs of the communities in which we live. As we are global, we can address community challenges wherever they occur. Every Lions Club supports a range of projects in its local community within four broad categories: health, sight, youth initiatives and international programmes. We are involved in raising funds for good causes, organising local events, providing direct support for individuals or groups in the community, helping our partners and responding pro-actively wherever and whenever we can. All members of Lion Clubs International are committed to serving local communities and share a set of common values. As volunteers, we are enthusiastic about making a difference and achieving extraordinary things. As people, we are ordinary men and women, who enjoy ourselves and gain satisfaction from playing a key role at the heart of the community.
