The World's Largest Service Club Organization

Whenever a Lions club gets together, problems get smaller. And communities get better. That's because we help where help is needed – in our own communities and around the world – with unmatched integrity and energy.

Our 46,000 clubs and 1.4+ million members make us the world's largest service club organization.
We're also one of the most effective. Our members do whatever is needed to help their local communities. Everywhere we work, we make friends. With children who need eyeglasses, with seniors who don’t have enough to eat and with people we may never meet.

Every penny helps
Every penny supports good causes
Lions clubs help local communities in a number of ways with every penny collected in the British Isles – going direct to good causes Not one penny is spent on administration as Lions club running costs are funded by members. Just ask any Lions member how we make every penny count.

Each Year 10% of all monies raised by Bourne Lions is sent to ‘Lions Clubs International Fund’ (L.C.I.F.) which is forwarded to Lions Clubs in those parts of the world where help is desperately needed, natural disasters etc. 90% of all monies raised goes to local good causes in our own community. Although a lot of the work goes unnoticed by the majority, Bourne Lions has over the last 40 years has raised thousands and thousands of pounds, helping to make our community a better place to live, an helping those less fortunate than ourselves.



Lions Logo


The Lions Symbol has been a symbol of Fidelity through the ages and among all nations, ancient and modern. It stands for loyalty to a friend, loyalty to a principal, loyalty to a duty, loyalty to a trust.

The emblem consists of a gold letter “L” on a circular area. Bordering this is a circular  area with two Lion profiles facing away from the centre. The word “Lions” appears at the top “International” at the bottom.

The Lions face both past and future - showing both pride of heritage and confidence in the future.


The Battle Against Blood Cancer

Lions International Blood Reaearch Appeal
With your support the Lions International Blood Research Appeal (LIBRA) currently aims to raise more than £200,000 for the Haematology Department at King’s College Hospital in London.
The funds raised through this major Lions project will ensure that the haematology team can develop several laboratories where they will go on to create new and improved treatments for patients with a variety of blood cancers including leukaemia, lymphoma and myeloma.
Head of Haematology at King’s, Professor Ghulam Mufti said: “We urgently require the funding as it will allow us to initiate new cell and gene therapy trials that would otherwise not be possible. We are so grateful for the ongoing support we receive from LIBRA, the latest campaign to raise £200,000 will make our research plans a reality.” Successful treatments will benefit patients across the UK and overseas.
