Who are we?
We’re everyday people who like to help others. We give up our time and energy so we can make a positive difference in our community. We also fundraise for communities in need around the world.
Is it just a NZ thing?
The Rangiora Lions Club is one of thousands of Lions clubs worldwide.
Lions is the world’s largest volunteer service organisation with over 1.4 million people. Although we don’t know most of them, we get on pretty well with those in our area, achieve great things in our community and have a lot of fun doing it.
How does our community benefit?
Rangiora Lions directly help community groups and individuals in the North Cantebury area. Also, our community (and country) can benefit from humanitarian funding from the international Lions organisation. For instance, Lions gave over $1 million to help Christchurch rebuild after the city was rocked by earthquakes in 2010/11.
