Lions in the United Kingdom

Read A Digital Version of the latest edition of "LION" - the magazine of the British and Irish Multiple District of Lions Club International

Lions Club International British Isles and Ireland continues to attract new members across the country

 

The most memorable fact about Lions Clubs is that every penny we collect through fund-raising goes direct to support good causes. Our administration costs are paid for by members’ subscriptions.

Lions are able to react quickly to support local communites whenever natural disaster strikes. Our humanitarian help is provided by local Lions who volunteer their support on the ground – backed by grants from the Lions Clubs International Foundation and fund-raising by Lions Clubs across the world. For example, in 2014, Lions Clubs throughout the British Isles and Ireland pledged £200,000 to provide vital water filtration systems for local communities affected by the disaster caused by Typhoon Haiyan in the Philippines.

And there are many more examples of similar help being provided by Lions in an Emergency.

We also respond to local needs – and changing circumstances. Helping to support those experiencing financial hardship in recent years, Lions Clubs have organised job fairs, set up food banks and managed charity shops and stalls.
