Leo Update 1 dated 14th January 2019

After an encouraging day at Tesco Birmingham Road talking to Parents and Students on the 11th January it was obvious that a high level of interest existed in the community for a Lions Junior club. We have a long way to go yet before the conclusion of the ballot so please keep on registering you blue tokens in the Lions Box.

A couple of photos taken on the day for interest, so keep looking at our web site for updates on how planning is progressing.  

Next news update mid-March 2019

The Forming of a LEO club in Stratford

Shakespeare Lions have commenced a programme to form a Junior Lions Club and have applied to Tesco Bags of Help funding programme for support. The members of the new club would be known as LEO’s. The logo for Leo’s clubs stands for, “Leadership, Experience and Opportunity”.

Shakespeare Lions have already canvassed local schools and other groups interested in the welfare of young people and have been encouraged by the words of support given. 

LEO clubs encourage the development of leadership qualities by participating in social service activities. New clubs are dependent on a Lions club to sponsor and initiate them, something that Shakespeare Lions are happy to do. Leo Club members are addressed as "Leos." They conduct various projects in the fields of health care, elders, children, disabled people, literacy and education, and self-development. LEOs can raise funds by conducting fund-raising projects. They can conduct projects with another Leo club, sponsoring Lions club, or with an outside organization. Being responsible for their own club LEO’s will have the benefit of a Lion advisor who will attend their meetings giving advice, encouragement and guidance if needed. This Lion will not take over the running of their club. Members elect their own officers responsible for running and leading on aspects of the club.

Interesting facts

Worldwide there are over 7,000 Leo Clubs

Over 175,000 LEO members

In 145 countries and territories

Well over 24.000 projects have been completed by Leo Clubs

Being a member of a LEO club can also support young people in University applications, and CV’s for employment. It will also make them aware of other opportunities available through Lions International.

The Club will cater for 14 to18 year olds.
