Tynedale Lions Club is part of the global organisation Lions Clubs International. Our 1.40 million members – who perform community service in 210 countries and geographic areas – are different in many ways, but share a core belief: community is what we make it.

When you join Lions, you join a global service network. So, at the same time you’re doing local community service, you can also contribute to Lions volunteer efforts around the world.

You can find Lions Clubs throughout the British Isles and Ireland – we have 17,000 active members belonging to 900 local clubs. Every Lions Club supports a range of projects in its local community – including health and youth initiatives – where you can get involved.

Every day, Lions are having fun by organising remarkable and memorable fundraising activities – with every penny raised going direct to good causes. Every year, in Europe alone, Lions Clubs’ members volunteer around 6 million hours of service and raise £88 million to support the needs of local communities.

Club members are all volunteers giving their time to run events that raise money to help those less fortunate than themselves whilst enjoying fun and fellowship. They meet regularly to plan their fund raising and social events and to agree which of the many requests for help they receive are most worthy of support from the limited funds they have available.

Tynedale Lions are part of a network of clubs in the North East and Scotland (District 105N).  We support each other in our activities and promote the creation new clubs. We have two daughter clubs at Mid Tyne based in Ryton, Tyne and Wear and at Allendale, Northumberland.
