About Us

Lions Clubs International


Lions Clubs International is the world's largest service club organization. We have 1.35 million members in more than 46,000 clubs worldwide.

Lions are everywhere. We're men and women who are active in community projects in more than 206 countries and other geographic areas.

Lions have a dynamic history. Founded in 1917, we are best known for fighting blindness –it's part of our history as well as our work today. But we also volunteer for many different kinds of community projects – including caring for the environment, feeding the hungry and aiding seniors and the disabled.

Lions are local. The Camborne and Redruth District Lions Club have helped a huge number of local groups, charities and individuals from the 'Precious Lives Appeal' and 'The Marshall Jansen - Handstand Appeal' to 'Red Youth' and Choices in Redruth and Camborne. All Lions Club members are volunteers and every penny we raise goes directly to charitable and other good causes.

Local Community Projects
Lions are active. Our motto is "We Serve." Lions are part of a global service network, doing whatever is necessary to help our local communities.

Lions give sight. By conducting vision screenings, equipping hospitals and clinics, distributing medicine and raising awareness of eye disease, Lions work toward their mission of providing vision for all. We have extended our commitment to sight conservation through countless local community projects and through our international SightFirst Program, which works to eradicate blindness.

Lions serve youth. Our community projects often support local children and schools through scholarships, recreation and mentoring. Internationally, we offer many programs, including the Peace Poster Contest, Youth Camps and Exchange and Lions Quest. And our Leo Program provides personal development through youth volunteer opportunities. There are approximately 144,000 Leos and 5,700 Leo clubs in more than 140 countries worldwide.
