Peterborough Lions prides itself on working hard within the local community, and that is where the vast majority of our fundraising is directed.

However, Peterborough Lions is only one of the many many Lions clubs around the world, and sometimes events outside our community – and indeed outside the UK – have a major impact that require that Lions from around the world to work together. The recent Super Typhoon Haiyan is one such even, affecting many thousands in the Philippines.

Peterborough Lions is a proud supporter of LCIF – Lions Clubs International Foundation – which amongst other things coordinates support from Lions around the world at times like these. LCIF has approved US$130,000 from the LCIF Disaster Relief Fund, to which the the Lions of the Orient and South East Asia have added US$370,000.

LCIF does not simply send money overseas and hope for the best. Working with local Lions, LCIF is able to ensure that the hard raised funds – itself hard earned by those who donated them – deliver genuine benefits where they are desperately needed.

If you would like to make a donation, you can do so via our BT Donate page. To ensure that it is used specifically to support LCIF’s Disaster Relief Fund, please make the donation then contact us to let us know how you would like the donation to be used.

Thank you.
