About Lions Clubs International

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 45,000 clubs and 1.3 million members make us the world's largest service club organization.
We're also one of the most effective. We get the job done.

We recently:
  • Brought 3,000 volunteers together to build a playground for children of all abilities in California, USA.
  • Fed 60,000 people in a township in South Africa. It's something Lions do there every day.
  • Sent a team of eye surgeons to Honduras to treat more than 100 adults and children.
Everywhere we work, we make friends. With children who need schoolbooks, with seniors who need transportation and with people we may never meet.

We're led by talented, dedicated volunteer leaders from around the world. And, we're supported by the Lions Clubs International Foundation (LCIF), which helps to fund Lions humanitarian projects.

The International Headquarters for both Lions Clubs International and the LCIF is in Oak Brook, Illinois, USA.

About Stretford and District Lions

Stretford and District Lions consists of members ( both male and female) from all walks of life and backgrounds, who are united in a common cause to help those less fortunate than themselves.

Although we do help International projects, generally the clubs activities concentrate on the needs of the local community . We also have a policy of " Fun & Friendship" which includes our social events.

Our club meets on the 1st and 3rd Monday of each month. At these meetings we discuss our community service, fund raising and social activities.

If you are interested in joining Stretford and District Lions or would like more information, please see our contacts page or come along to one of our meetings.
