Lions clubs help local communities in a number of ways with every penny collected in the British Isles – and every cent in Ireland – going direct to good causes.
Not one penny/cent is spent on administration as Lions club running costs are funded by members. Just ask any Lions member how we make every penny/cent count.
Your money makes a real difference
From fun-filled community activities and collecting food donations, to running fund-raising events and selling pre-loved possessions, Lions clubs are busy at the heart of local communities.
We raise money in hundreds of creative and traditional ways to make a real difference to the lives of ordinary people who need our help.
Local needs: donate | serve | volunteer
Lions clubs also serve local needs in a flexible way by responding promptly and doing good deeds, large or small. As volunteers, members of Lions clubs make things happen in local communities that would not otherwise take place.Lions clubs may provide personal help lasting a minute or two, or mobilise hundreds of members as volunteers at local or regional events on an annual basis. By supporting air ambulance crews, managing flood damage repairs, and helping out at local community events in steel-capped shoes, Lions clubs can be relied upon at the heart of the action.
Community: retail | shops | stalls | online
Lions clubs are also experts at the ‘pop-up’ retail outlet – from car boot and garage sales to market stalls, Summer fetes to Christmas fayres. We make and bake, run raffles and tombolas, organise charity auctions and jumble sales. And we’re not just skilled in the traditional ways of raising funds. More and more Lions clubs are maximising income through online channels.
