.......................................................................................

Rochdale Lions Club was Chartered in 1990

Lions Clubs International has over 45000 Clubs and 1.3Million Members in approx 203 Countries.

The HQ of the Association is based in Oakbrook, Chicago, USA. Lions Clubs International came into being in 1917.

The United Kingdom was the 105th Country to have Lions Clubs.  It started in London in 1950 with the London Host Lions Club.  The UK is split into 13 Districts and Rochdale is in District BN.  We are also part of a Zone which consists of four other Lions Clubs. Middleton/Heywood/Littleborough/Oldham

The Lions Clubs Motto is "WE SERVE", but Rochdale also includes the phrase:- "WE SERVE     BECAUSE     WE CARE".

The aim of Lions Clubs is to serve our respective Communities in any way that is required.  One of our main Projects is service to the Blind.  In the 1920's Helen Keller attended a Convention and asked the Lions to become "Knights of the Blind", and ever since,  Lions have continued to act as Knights to the Blind.

Recently Lions had a Project called Campaign Sightfirst 2, which raised $200Million which will help erase River Blindness in Third World Countries, and train Medical Staff.  Cateract Operations are carried out in Hospitals funded by Lions Clubs, and a great many of the Doctors are members of Lions Clubs.

Rochdale Lions Club needs New Members to help us to continue serving our Community.

Any Man or Woman over the age of 18 who would like to spare a couple of hours a month helping the Aged or Infirm or Vulnerable members of our Society would be made very welcome to attend one of our Meetings.  If you came, you would not be "Press Ganged" into joining us.  We would like you to attend a few Meetings to see if what we do , is what you want to do, and it also gives you time to get to know us.
