Internationally we have over 1.45 million volunteer members in over 210 countries and geographical areas. We are the largest humanitarian service organization in the world and strive to be global leaders in humanitarian projects with service every day – in local communities, throughout the world. Lions have no political or religious affiliations whatsoever. We are a non-profit organisation and have recently been awarded the title No 1 NGO in the world.
Locally, District 105A has over 1360 members from sixty eight diverse Lions Clubs within the areas of London (north of the Thames) Bedfordshire, Buckinghamshire, Hertfordshire and Oxfordshire.
Each local Lions Club is unique and supports local community projects and causes including vision, youth, health, environment, disaster relief. Lions Clubs also look further afield and contribute to global health emergencies and natural disasters. Funds are raised in many ways with our annual subscriptions paying for all administration costs. Each Club has a social side too friendships and fun are important .Please take a look at our photo gallery containing some of our projects and also our Facebook site www.facebook.com/LionsClubsDistrict105A
