Leeds Lions is a group of active men and women who live in the community and who wish to give something back by supporting local people and organisations. We are members of Lions Clubs International – the world’s largest voluntary service organisation.
Everywhere we work we aim to make friends. With children who need teaching aids, with seniors who need transportation and with people we may never meet.
The activities of the club include fundraising, providing service to others, providing financial assistance to deserving people, clubs and causes mainly in and around our area.
On the international scene, in conjunction with Leeds Skyrack Lions Club, we run exchange holidays for young disabled adults with our daughter club (Bad Sooden-Allendorf) in Germany.
We’re helping to prevent blindness: and bringing clean water to a remote area.
In December each year we accept donations of food at a church service organised by North Leeds Beavers and Cubs. We then make up food parcels for distribution to the elderly in the area.
We also organise or assist at events. which enable some activity for the elderly, e.g. a tea party with the Lord Mayor of Leeds followed by entertainment with a local choir.
We meet on the second Monday of the month at the Holiday Inn Express, Cavendish Street, Kirkstall Road, Leeds LS3 1LY at 7.30pm.
