The Lions’ Way of Life

The Lions Club of Morpeth is a member of Lions Clubs International. We are part of a global network of 1.4 million volunteers. When a humanitarian crisis strikes, Lions Clubs International Foundation work with and are guided by their own Lions members who are ordinary people present on the ground. As the World’s largest voluntary, non-governmental organisation, our volunteers fund raise in their own local communities with every penny raised being used to help those in need. We also have fun in doing so. We don’t spend money on fancy fundraising campaigns, all our administration and marketing costs are funded by members’ subs. It can prove difficult providing aid but we are committed to not wasting the money entrusted to Lions by the public and ensuring it can genuinely help victims of a disaster. Lions Clubs of the British Isles are very grateful for the public support, which enables us to commit to solving long-term problems through our presence in local communities throughout the world.

The Lions Club of Morpeth supports a range of good causes and local projects where you can get involved. Lion members are ordinary people who do extraordinary things to help others and support good causes. This also means that globally we have more volunteers in more places than any other service club organisation. In Europe alone, Lions Club members volunteer almost 6 million hours of service and raise £88 million annually to support the needs of local communities.
