Common sense and a sense of humour are two traits found in abundance among members of Lions clubs and, in particular, here at the Vale of Belvoir Lions club.
When it comes to making things happen in our community, we put a smile on our faces, roll up our sleeves and get things done.
All Lions clubs apply a phenomenal range of talent, know-how and skills in supporting community activities. We try hard to be creative, imaginative, resourceful and reliable. Out in all weathers, from dawn to dusk – and into the evening, Lions are the back-bone of events up and down the country.
In this section of our website, we focus on some of our favourite activities, where we have fun, bring together our community and raise much needed funds for good causes.
We are not unique but where there’s a need, there’s usually a Lion’s club just like ours. Lions Clubs International is the largest service club organization in the world. Some 1.4 million members perform valuable service in 210 countries and geographic areas around the globe. Lions are friends, family and neighbours who share a core belief: community is what we make it.
Our club helps where help is needed – in our own community and also around the world – through humanitarian projects and hands-on service.
We are doing community volunteer work, helping, leading, planning and supporting others. Because we're local, we can serve the unique needs of the community that we live in. And because we belong to a vast global organisation, we can address challenges that go beyond borders.
We believe everyone deserves a healthy life. From providing health programmes that focus on hearing loss to supporting efforts to control and prevent diabetes, Lions volunteers are working to improve the health of children and adults around the world.
We also empower the next generation. Whether it's providing youth volunteer opportunities or sharing a message of peace through our Peace Poster contest, our youth programmes invest in the future by reaching out to young people.
We our proud of our efforts and try hard to offer support to our local communities. Lions help wherever, whenever and however we can.
