Internationally we have over 1.45 million volunteer members in over 210 countries and geographical areas. We are the largest humanitarian service organization in the world and strive to be global leaders in humanitarian projects with service every day – in local communities, throughout the world. Lions have no political or religious affiliations whatsoever. We are a non-profit organisation and have recently been awarded the title No 1 NGO in the world.
Locally, District 105A has over 1360 members from sixty eight diverse Lions Clubs within the areas of London (north of the Thames) Bedfordshire, Buckinghamshire, Hertfordshire and Oxfordshire.
Each local Lions Club is unique and supports local community projects and causes including vision, youth, health, environment, disaster relief. Lions Clubs also look further afield and contribute to global health emergencies and natural disasters. Funds are raised in many ways with our annual subscriptions paying for all administration costs. Each Club has a social side too, friendships and fun are important.

This next year Lions International and many of the District 105A Clubs will focus on five core areas using some of the projects below as well as events for the young, the elderly and people with disabilities that reflect our Districts cultural diversity.
I am honoured to serve as District Governor for July 2020 -June 2021 and my motto is: “ challenge there is no achievement”. My aims are to actively promote our organisation’s ethos and core principles which is made possible by nurturing and motivating existing members. Simultaneously, providing support to each club with recruiting both members and volunteers so we are able to “serve even more people in need.”
Our funds are raised in many ways, we pay for our own Administration by way of our annual subscriptions, so all monies collected after event expenses are there to help many others in their endeavours. Occasionally Partnered Charities (Marie Currie and MacMillan Nurses and many others) ask for our help in raising funds, which Lions do whilst having fun and making friendships by helping others.
DG’s Partner’s Charity
Brain Tumour Research
Brain tumours are indiscriminate; they can affect anyone at any age. What‘s more, they kill more children and adults under the age of 40 than any other cancer... yet historically just 1% of the national spend on cancer research has been allocated to this devastating disease.
Brain Tumour Research is the only national charity in the UK dedicated to funding continuous and sustainable scientific research into brain tumours.
Our vision is to find a cure for brain tumours and our mission is to build a network of experts in sustainable brain tumour research.
