Welcome to Lions105a.uk: A non profit charity organisation
Where there’s a need, there’s a Lion
Hello and welcome to the website of Lions International District 105A
WHO WE ARE.
Internationally we have over 1.36 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 1100 members from sixty diverse Lions Clubs within the areas of London (north of the Thames) Bedfordshire, Buckinghamshire, Hertfordshire and Oxfordshire.
WHAT WE DO
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. Please take a look at our photo gallery containing some of our projects and also our Facebook site.

- Childhood Cancer by expanding access to life saving treatment and supporting children and their families
- Vision by programmes and services for the blind and visually impaired and educating and improving eye health and eye care
I am honoured to serve as District Governor for July 2021 -June 2022 and my message to the District is: “To Serve with Kindness and Compassion, as we need Kindness and Compassion more now than ever needed before.”. One of my aims is to actively promote our organisation’s Ethics at Club level. And provide support to each club with Retention and recruiting members.
District 105A Lions clubs will achieve this by:
Using on programmes and services for the blind and visually impaired o Supporting local and large-scale global health programs to prevent and control diabetes o Organising events that celebrate the diversity of our community especially our senior citizens, people with disabilities and young people.
Our funds are raised in many different ways, we pay for our own Administration. So all monies collected after event expenses are there to help many others in their endeavours. Occasionally Partnered Charities (Marie Currie and MacMillan Nurses) ask for our help in raising funds o Whilst having fun and making friendships by helping others.
Lifelites is a Charity which gives life-limited-disabled Children to use Hospice Services across the British Isles. What makes Lifelites Charity so special TO ME, it is because it gives hundreds of Disable Children with complex and life-threatening illness - the chance to play, to be creative, control something for themselves and most important communicate with people other, through the magic of assistive technology.
