HISTORY

History traced back 22 years ago to a gentleman, John Tan and his pioneer team who decided to charter a new club on 7 March 1995. That was the birth of the Lions Club of Singapore Clarke Quay. Throughout the years, the club has been active in many fund raising projects, locally as well as overseas.

Today, one of the regular club projects include a joint project with other Lions Clubs, the Vegetable Charity Drive Project, where club members collect vegetables from the Pasir Panjang Wholesale Market on Saturday mornings and distribute them to the 2 Lions Homes for the Elders in Bishan and Bedok and to 5 other nursing homes around Singapore (a total of more than 2160 elderly). At the same time, the collection is also distributed to secondary beneficiaries made up of the underprivileged families (inclusive of the intellectually disabled and ex-leprosy victims). We also support the ARC Children's Centre, a centre for the terminally ill children, where the club help raise funds and spend meaningful time with the children and once every fortnight, some club volunteers provide hair and nail cutting services to the needy elderly in the Clementi and Mei Ling area.

Other notable activities that the club are active in includes volunteering in the District Projects, such as the World Diabetes Day, World Sight Day, Lions Befrienders' and Lions Home's Flag Day and multiple overseas activities, such as visiting the orphanages jointly with our overseas twin clubs. To date, the club has twinned with 8 other overseas clubs from countries such as Malaysia, Thailand, Philippines, Indonesia, Hong Kong and Taiwan.

The club has also seen many outstanding members, Lion William Kwok who was elected District Governor in 1999 and  the very dynamic Past President SK Ho, who rejuvenated the club in year 2012. The club has been growing strong ever since with members who are passionate to serve the community and believe in giving back to the society.
