WHO ARE LIONS?

Lions Clubs International is the world's largest serviceclub organisation.  Lions are an international network of over 1.3 million men and women in over 44,000 clubs within 200 countries who work together through selfless, effective community service to answer the needs that challenge communties.

Lions are individuals who volunteer their time to humanitarian causes in their local and global communities, conducting and supporting vision and health screenings, building parks, awarding scholarships, assisting youth, providing help in times of disaster and much more.  In the British Isles and Ireland, and the rest of Europe, Lions donate over 5.7 million hours and £88 million to humanitarian causes each year.

As a member of a Lions Club you become aware of the needs of your community and have the opportunity to make a difference.  Each Club provides volunteers with project management experience, leadership training, personal development opportunities and organised fund raising programmes.  Being a Lion empowers you to help others in a way that no one person could be alone.
ETHICS
  • TO SHOW my faith in the worthiness of my vocation by industrious application to the end that I may merit a reputation for quality of service.

  • TO SEEK success and to demand all fair remuneration or profit as my just due, but to accept no profit or success at the price of my own self-respect lost because of unfair advantage taken or because of questionable acts on my part.

  • TO REMEMBER that in building up my business it is not necessary to tear down anothers; to be loyal to my clients or customers and true to myself.

  • WHENEVER a doubt arises as to the right or ethics of my position or action towards others, to resolve such doubt against myself.

  • TO HOLD friendship as an end and not a means. To hold that true friendship exists not on account of the service performed by one to another, but that true friendship demands nothing but accepts service in the spirit in which it is given.

INTERNATIONAL PURPOSES
  • TO ORGANISE, charter and supervise clubs to be known as Lions clubs.
  • TO COORDINATE the activities and standardize the administrtion of Lions clubs.
  • TO CREATE and foster a spirit of understanding among the peoples of the world.
  • TO PROMOTE the principles of good government and good citizenship.
  • TO TAKE an active interest in the civic, cultural, social and moral welfare of the community.
  • TO UNITE the club in the bonds of friendship, good fellowship and mutual understanding.
  • TO PROVIDE a forum for the open discussion of all matters of public interest; provided, however, thatpartisan politics and sectarian religion shall not be debated by club members,
  • TO ENCOURAGE service minded people to serve their community without personal financial reward, and to encourage efficiency and promote high ethical standards in commerce, industry,professions, public works and private endeavours.
