About Lions International
LIONS CLUBS INTERNATIONAL is the world’s largest service club organisation.
Founded in 1917 by MELVIN JONES in Chicago IL, Lions are an international network of over 1.4 million men and women in over 44,000 clubs in 200+ countries, who work together through selfless, effective community service to answer the needs that challenge communities. Lions are individuals who volunteer their time to humanitarian causes in their local and global communities, conducting and supporting vision and health screenings, building parks, awarding scholarships, assisting youth, providing help in times of disaster, funding aids to living, and much, much more.
In the British Isles and Ireland, and the rest of Europe, Lions donate over 5.7 million hours and £88 million to humanitarian causes each year. As a member of a Lions Club you become aware of the needs of your community and have the opportunity to make a difference. Each Club provides volunteers with project management experience, leadership training, personal development opportunities and organised fund raising programmes.
Being a Lion empowers you to help others in a way that no one person could do alone.
We have a number of YouTube videos that explain more about Lions. You will find them below and at our YouTube channel.
