Unlike the big cats, members of Lions Clubs come in all shapes and sizes, women, men, boys, girls, young and old. One thing they all have in common is a desire to develop personally by helping and serving in their own community and around the world.
Lions do many things for their local communities from litter picking to fundraising for medical equipment, from helping young people to develop to families in need. Lions do things for others in difficult circumstances across the globe. One way in which this is done is the spectacle recycling sheme.
Local Lions collect unwanted glasses which are then distributed in the third world by Lions Clubs International. to restore better vision there by facilitating a more economically and socially productive and satisfying life.
