Ruislip Lions Club are members of Lions Clubs International. We are part of a global network of 1.4 million volunteers. 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.

Ruislip Lions enjoyed their annual Christmas Party at Woodford Hall 1st/3rd Ruislip Scout Hut. This year the main dish was piping hot Lasagna which made a great change from the traditional menu although the soup, plentiful sweets and cheese and biscuits were welcome as well. Brains were tested by Quiz games.
Ruislip Lions took part in the 2017 Ickenham Fest on a very cold night selling Santa Hats & a Wild Cat tombola game. Lions Peter and Bob seen with a festive hat and a cute cub.
The weather was very cold on Pinner Pantomime Evening which took place on Thursday 30th November. However that did not deter a lot of young people from taking part in “The William Tell” crossbow competition, with the overall winner on the night, taking home a complete set including a Bow, Darts and a target. The money raised will be used to help Lions charities both locally and internationally.
