Hello and Welcome

Covid has made us all reflect on what is important to us and the need to think and help those in need. So, thank you for showing interest in becoming a volunteer.

Your participation will be welcomed warmly, and the following will give you an insight into some of the type of activities we are involved in: 

  • Helping to Feed those in need: Volunteering at food banks, collecting surplus food that would go to waste and redistributing it, providing meals throughout the year 
  • Caring for our Environment: Planting trees, recycling programmes, helping to preserve our local areas to providing clean water 
  • Supporting children with Cancer and their families 
  • Promoting wellbeing: Promoting awareness of Diabetes and measures to prevent and mitigate it
  • Helping people who are blind and/or visually impaired 
  • Providing food and warm clothes for homeless and rough sleepers

WHO are we?

We are a non-profit charity with no political or religious affiliations solely made up of diverse volunteers who?) want to provide humanitarian service to vulnerable people both in our local communities and those abroad. We pay for our own Administration; so no funds raised from the public are used for administration, 100% goes to charity.

Our funds are raised in many ways such as sponsor walks, race nights, musical events and theme dinner events and collections in towns and cities. All monies collected after event expenses are used for to help others such as Marie Currie, MacMillan Nurses, Great Ormond Hospital, Eye Camps, who ask for our help in raising funds. Most importantly we have a common bond of making friends, and having fun whilst helping others.

District Governor 2022-2023

Lion Kavaljit (Kav) Dev


I am honoured and privileged to serve this year as the elected District Governor. My role is unique as it brings together all the clubs in our District to work towards a shared vision to help those in need.

As volunteers we are passionate about what we do that is, working together to make a difference to lives of others less fortunate than ourselves. Service is at the heart of what we do and my vision for this year is to further embed and grow Lionism across District 105A. 

For this my reason, the message from myself as serving District Governor this year is "Passion to Make a Difference". 

Lions are enthusiastic about serving others and having an impact on the lives of their local and international communities. . By adopting the belief that 'Together We Can' leads us to accomplish results.

I am proud to serve District 105A which has over 1200 volunteers known as Lion members from sixty two Clubs operating from 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. They also decide to contribute to global health emergencies and natural disasters. Please take a look at our photo gallery containing some of our projects and also our Facebook site.

I hope you will want to play your part in making a difference and join us.

Volunteer and make a difference

VICTA logo_Block_LandscapeDG's Spouse's Charity

In 1925 Helen Keller charged the Lions to become "Knights for the Blind" and since then we have focussed on many vision projects. 

Keeping this in mind, Paramjit's chosen charity this year is VICTA (https://www.victa.org.uk/). VICTA supports children and young adults who are blind or partially sighted and their families. It believes that everyone has the right to an independent and fulfilling life. VICTA's support, advice, grants and activities enable young people and their families to build skills, develop confidence and help each other toward a more positive future.
