Young Ambassadors Competition

Supporting Exceptional Young People

The Young Ambassador programme recognises, encourages and supports young people from the age of 15-18 who are actively involved in helping others.

The competition operates throughout Europe and enables individual Lions, Leos or Lioness clubs to select and sponsor a candidate as their Young Ambassador. Successful candidates progress through a series of levels – club, zone, region and district – culminating in the final for Lions Clubs International British Isles and an opportunity to participate in the European final.


Congratulations to Abi Hutchinson the winner of the Young Ambassadors Competition sponsored by Shakespeare Lions Club

Australian Bushfire and Humanitarian Appeal

Reproduced from New South Wales Rural Fire Service

Months of severe drought and record-breaking temperatures have fuelled a series of
catastrophic bushfires across Australia.




Lions Clubs MD105 Council of Governors has approved an immediate response. It has
been agreed with PIP Lion Barry Palmer of Australia, that Lions Clubs of the British Isles
will donate towards the purchase of much-needed water tanks. Each water tank costs
£1,600 (A$3,000).

Lions Clubs MD105 Council of Governors has approved an MD105 Foundation appeal
for donations to support the Lions Clubs of Australia to purchase water tanks and the
provision of other humanitarian needs. This will allow people to return to their homes and
achieve some degree of normality.
