Braintree Lions are members of Lions Clubs International. We are part of a global network of 1.4 million volunteers in most countries of the world. When a humanitarian crisis strikes, Lions Clubs International Foundation work with and are guided by their own Lions members who are ordinary people present on the ground. As the World’s largest voluntary, non-governmental organisation, our volunteers fundraise in their own local communities with every penny raised being used to help those in need. We don’t spend money on fancy fundraising campaigns, all our administration and marketing costs are funded by members’ subs. It can prove difficult providing aid but we are committed not to wasting the money entrusted to Lions by the public and ensuring it can genuinely help victims of a disaster. Lions Clubs of the British Isles are very grateful for the public support, which enables us to commit to solving long-term problems through our presence in local communities throughout the world.
