Lions Clubs New Zealand

We Serve

Lions are ordinary people from all walks of life who enjoy getting together and doing good things. We are kind and generous people who want to help. That’s why we work on projects to improve our communities and protect the environment. We get enormous satisfaction from the knowledge that what we do DOES make a difference. And we enjoy friendship and fun while doing so. 

Whenever Lions club members get together, problems get smaller. And communities get better. Because we help where help is needed – in our own communities and around the world – with unmatched integrity and energy. Lions Clubs New Zealand is part of a global organisation with 1.4 million members in 208 countries and geographic regions. With this much manpower, it’s no wonder that Lions Club members can achieve extraordinary things, every day.
