The Lions club of Dorchester & District (Reg Charity 1178508), received it’s Charter in 1970, and has continued to provide a service to the local community since that date.
As Lions we need to first take care of our own community, where our members live. This is my basic philosophy of our commitment as Lions. If we do this, we will encourage other community-minded citizens to join our Clubs, and upon meeting local needs, we can expand our outreach on a global humanitarian basis.
– Quote from International President Jimmy Ross.
We are an associate member of the Lions Club International, which is the largest and most active organisation of its kind in the world, with a total membership nearing 1.4million in 191 countries.
