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.
Men and women who believe that by working together they will accomplish far more than would be possible as individuals.
Members committed to solving worldwide health and social problems, and who realise that solutions are possible when every Lions Club participates.
People who cherish the fellowship of their own Club, but who also feel a close kinship with Lions in over 200 countries throughout the world.
Individuals dedicated to maintaining the highest ethical and moral standards in their Club - and in their personal lives.
People who are serious about their 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.
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.
To empower volunteers to serve their communities, meet humanitarian needs, encourage peace and promote international understanding through Lions clubs.
Lions Clubs International is the world's largest service club organisation with 1.3 million 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.
