Sale Lions is a local club affiliated to Lions Clubs International which is the largest service organisation in the world and in December 2011, we will have served the Sale community for 40 years. The Lions motto is " We Serve " and our aim is to provide practical help to those less fortunate than ourselves. Over the years, we have been able to assist the elderly, disabled, disadvantaged families and many different local groups in many different ways. Around the world Lions Clubs International provides much needed financial and practical aid where there are natural disasters like tsunamis and earthquakes as well as having numerous ongoing projects such as combating blindness and providing water wells in areas of drought.
Members of Sale Lions spend a lot of time fund-raising and have raised thousands of pounds for good causes but have fun doing it and we are always grateful for the support that we receive year after year from the people of Sale. Without this support we could not achieve any of our aims. We have many major fundraising activities including an Annual Fete , Golf Competition, Christmas Street Collection, Bag packing and a Sportsman’s Dinner. We are also involved in community projects like the Message in a Bottle scheme which allows for vital information to be stored in the homes of elderly and vulnerable people. We also issue food vouchers at Christmas time to the elderly and infirm.
On the social side, our members enjoy meals out, barbecues, quiz nights and dances.
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.
