Riccarton-Waimairi Lions Club
Lions Den Burnside Park

Lions are ordinary men, women and young people from all walks of life who bridge religious, political, economic and social boundaries. They are united in their desire to make a difference by contributing their personal time and talents to help other people. Their motto is “We Serve”. In New Zealand more than 10,000 members belong to 389 clubs in seven Districts. They are part of a worldwide network of 1.35 million Lions in 46,392 clubs in over 200 countries or regions. They are community volunteers who roll up their sleeves to help young people, elderly, the ailing, the needy and their environment. In terms of their time on projects and money raised, it is estimated Lions contribute more than $100 million each year for charitable organisations here and in the Pacific.

Our club has been active in the western suburbs of Christchurch for over 50 years. Our membership is aging and is in need of more members of both genders to keep it viable. We are also interested in couples joining our club. I am happy to answer any questions people might have about our club or about the Lions movement in general.
