About Lions – who we are and what we do
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.
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 help others and make things happen.
In 2017/18, Lions Clubs International celebrated its centenary.
Every Lions Clubs supports a range of good causes and projects in its area where you can get involved. Every day Lions are having fun by organising remarkable and memorable fundraising activities. Every year in Europe alone, Lions Clubs’ members volunteer around 6 million hours of service and raise £88 million to support the needs of local communities.
Because we are local, we serve the unique needs of the communities in which we live. As we are global, we can address community challenges wherever they occur.
