Lions are ordinary people who do extraordinary things to help others and support good causes throughout the British Isles. Globally we have more volunteers in more places than any other service club organisation, and love to step forward to volunteer, help others and make things happen.
Wherever you live, work or travel across the British Isles, you are likely to come across members of Lions Clubs and the projects we support.

“It is a cliché, but you will get out of it what you put in! Lions has been described as a constructive form of relaxation.”
“Working together on fund raising and community welfare events is enormous fun.”
“The satisfaction of seeing an event through from planning and organisation to successful conclusion can be tremendous.”
“Receiving the thanks of the recipients of your help, whether financial or practical, lifts your spirit.”
Lions membership also provides a wonderful opportunity to forge lasting friendships and build a strong social network with like-minded individuals who share your passion for making a difference in the world. It’s a rewarding way to connect with people, create meaningful bonds, and grow personally while contributing to a greater cause.
You have nothing to lose – but a lot to gain.
