Who we are 

  • We are a group of men and women from diverse backgrounds living in the Northern Suburbs and nearby communities including Johnsonville, Churton Park, Khandallah, Ngaio, Newlands, and Woodridge.

  • We enjoy the fellowship of people interested in serving others.

What we do

  • We enjoy ourselves
  • We carry out ‘hands-on’ projects in our community and with other Lions Clubs.
  • We raise funds for, and give physical assistance to, charitable projects.
  • We organise community events to improve our sense of community.
  • We assist the blind, the elderly and our youth.
  • We assist in times of emergency.
  • We visit other clubs, have social outings.

What we volunteer

  • We share an evening meal and meeting on alternate Mondays twice a month, while hearing interesting guest speakers.
  • We become involved on a committee to help organize the activities of the Club.
  • We work on projects as our home and work commitments allow.

When we meet

  • We meet on the 1st and 3rd Monday of each month for a dinner meeting.
  • At the Johnsonville Club, situated at the top of Norman Lane, Johnsonville
  • Commencing 6 pm for friendship, a meal at 6.30 followed by a guest speaker, then some general business, closing soon after 8:30pm.
  • Committees meet as required (sometimes during Club Meetings) to plan Club activities.
  • A few times each year we have a social evening at the movies, or a café, or 10 pin bowling etc.

What it costs

  • Membership of most organisations has a cost.
  • Currently our annual dues are about the equivalent of a cup of coffee a week.
  • And there is an optional reasonably priced meal at each Club meeting attended.
  • Lions are proud of the fact that all funds raised in the community are returned to the community.
  • We do have some activities that raise funds for administration purposes and help reduce our costs.

What we get in return

  • The close friendship of club members and their families.
  • The ability to assist those less fortunate than yourself.
  • The satisfaction of being able to achieve service we could not achieve on our own.
  • Fun and enjoyment from meeting and working alongside like-minded people.
  • A range of low cost self development opportunities.
  • As with any organisation, the friendships, satisfaction and self development do depend on the amount we are prepared to be involved.
