Welcome to Windermere and Ambleside Lions Club – Serving the community

The Lions of Windermere and Ambleside are part of The International Association of Lions Clubs that was founded in America in 1917. Now, with almost 1.4 million members worldwide in 43,000 clubs, it is the world’s largest and most active Service Club Organization.

The Lions motto is “WE SERVE” and its mission statement reads “To create and foster a spirit of understanding among all people for humanitarian needs by providing voluntary services through community involvement and international co-operation”.

Our aim is to help the less fortunate in our society with our activities concentrating on the needs of the local community. We raise money for local, national and international projects and participate in service activities to all age groups. In addition to assisting others, we organise various social events for our members and have fun.

LCIF is the Lions Club International Foundation, the official charitable Foundation of Lions Clubs International, and brings help, hope and healing to the world. Grant funding is awarded to Lions districts worldwide for large-scale humanitarian projects that address community needs.

The Foundation’s mission is to support the efforts of Lions clubs worldwide in serving their local communities and the world community as they carry out essential humanitarian service projects. Through LCIF, Lions tackle global problems such as blindness and hearing loss and respond to major catastrophes such as earthquakes and floods.
