Lions Clubs are an international network of men and women who work together to answer the needs that challenge communities across the world.
Lions are Members of the world's largest and most active service club organisation.
We are men and women who believe that by working together we will accomplish far more than would be possible as individuals.
Members are committed to solving worldwide health and social problems, and who realise that solutions are possible when every Lions Club participates. We are individuals dedicated to maintaining the highest ethical and moral standards in our Club - and in our personal lives.
We are serious about our commitment to humanitarian service, but have fun along the way.
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.
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.
Lions Clubs International is the world's largest service club organisation with more than 1.4million members in approximately 45,000 clubs in 205 countries. Visit our website, www.lionsclubs.org
Lions are men and women who volunteer their time for humanitarian causes. Founded in 1917 by Melvin Jones, our motto is "We Serve."
Our own Club Mission Statement 'Who Cares Wins'
The members of the Lions Club of Reading are a group of men and women who offer our time and effort in helping those less fortunate. We meet two evenings a month to organise our community and fund raising events. Giving makes us all feel better for living. We have fun too and our reward is the satisfaction in what we do for others. If this sounds like something for you then why not come along to one of our meetings or join us at a fund raising event.
