Oadby & Wigston Lions

Due to the Coronavirus situation our normal activities have been curtailed. However, once the virus has been defeated we will be back up and running and rearranging the activities that have had to be postponed. Stay safe.


Our club is made up of more than 20 members with a wide range of ages, interests and ideas, having fun whilst working to a common end - serving the local community and beyond.

Being a lion helps you change peoples' lives, even if you do not have a lot of time to spare. We meet each month, on the  last Monday of the month at Glen Gorse Golf Club, A6, Oadby at 7.00p.m.

We also enjoy social, community and fund raising events throughout the year. When we fund raise we make sure that 100% of the funds donated by the public is past on to charities we are supporting.

Members subscriptions pay for the running costs of the club.


Lions meet the needs of local communities and the world every day because they share a core belief - to serve their community.

Lions Clubs International is the world's largest service club organization. We have 1.35 million members in more than 45,000 clubs in more than 206 countries and geographic areas.

Lions have a dynamic history. Founded in 1917, we are best known for fighting blindness, but we also volunteer for many different kinds of community projects - including caring for the environment, feeding the hungry and aiding seniors and the disabled.

Lions give sight. By conducting vision screenings, equipping hospitals and clinics, distributing medicine and raising awareness of eye disease, Lions work toward their mission of providing vision for all. We have extended our commitment to sight conservation through countless local efforts and through our international SightFirst Program, which works to eradicate blindness.

Lions serve youth. Our community projects often support local children and schools through scholarships, recreation and mentoring. Internationally, we offer many programs, including the Peace Poster Contest, Youth Camps and Exchange and Lions Quest. 

Our Leo Program provides the youth of the world with an opportunity for personal development through volunteering. There are approximately 144,000 Leos and 5,700 Leo clubs in more than 140 countries worldwide.

Lions award grants. Since 1968, the Lions Clubs International Foundation (LCIF) has awarded more than US$700 million in grants to support Lions humanitarian projects around the world. LCIF was also ranked the number one nongovernmental organization in a 2007 study by The Financial Times.

Lions help during disasters. Together, our Foundation and Lions are helping communities following natural disasters by providing for immediate needs such as food, water, clothing and medical supplies – and aiding in long-term reconstruction.

Lions are active. Our motto is "We Serve." Lions are part of a global service network, doing whatever is necessary to help our local communities.
