Helping People Locally


Helping People Nationally and Internationally


The money you help us raise goes a long way. Lions clubs working together can make a huge difference. Here are just a few of the good causes we support.

UNICEF: The United Nations Children's Fund  

We support UNICEF to provide Edukits (a school in a box). The kits have the basic educational materials for about 40 students. They are used in areas without schools because of violence or natural disasters. The Edukit is designed to be a low-cost, rapid response to an emergency, by establishing a self sufficient classroom.


LIBRA:  The Lions International Blood Research Appeal

LIBRA raises funds to equip the department of Haematological Medicine at King's College Hospital in London, providing diagnostic equipment to help experts develop treatments for Liver disease, Alzheimer's, Parkinsons, Sickle Cell Disease, Diabetes and Leukaemia.



Provides water, sanitation and hygiene education to people in 26 of the world's poorest countries  


Provides equipment, training and oral health services to hospitals, clinics and dentists in the developing world.


So Do you want to make some new friends and help us help others?
Why not take a look at the Lions, there are so many ways you can contribute, including:


 donating your old glasses, we can re-cycle them enabling someone else to see clearly.
 donating your unwanted furniture, we can give it to someone locally who really needs it.
 donating your time, if you have some free time we'll know someone you could help.


Please contact us to see how you can help, or to discuss coming along to one of our lively meetings. We organise many social activities, as well as those aimed at helping others, so come and see if you'd like to join in. We meet on the 3rd Monday of each month in the Raven Hotel, Hook at 8PM.
