About Us

Welcome to the website for Lions Clubs International in central southern England. There are 64 clubs and 3 branch clubs in District 105D, all of which serve their local areas and the wider world.

Local Clubs are part of the world's largest such organisation, with 1.35 million members serving in 207 countries and geographic areas. The association is both non-political and non-sectarian.

Lions Clubs are a network of men and women who work together to answer the needs that challenge communities across the world.

Lions are ......

We cover all costs from our own dues, ensuring that all donated funds go to the causes. Transparency and accountability operate at every level; in fact, The Financial Times has ranked Lions Clubs International Foundation the "best among non-government organisations worldwide with which to work".

We are proud that our organisation is close to a century old, and that it has a distinguished history of doing good works for the world. Local communities respect and trust their clubs, both because those clubs are made up of neighbours and friends who have a long record of support, and because of the Lions Clubs International name and legacy.

We have fun in our clubs. And when we meet fellow Lions for the first time, we treat them like old friends.

When you join Lions, you join a global service network. So at the same time you're helping your own community locally, you can also contribute to Lions community efforts in other countries.
