LIONS IN SOUTH EAST
Lions Clubs District 105SE
The Lions Clubs in the SE of England have joined together to support the Haematology Department at Kings College Hospital. So far £500,000 has been raised to fund the provision of new equipment. The Department will move to its new Clinical Research Facility during the next twelve months and it will need even more new instruments to enable it to treat lymphoma and leukaemia. Lions plan to raise £100,000 to fund this kit.

In addition, Lions in the SE are supporting the Kent, Sussex and Surrey Air Ambulance. They have committed to give £250,000 over the next ten years to enable the helicopter to fly at night. This will permit the Air Ambulance Service to respond to life-threatening incidents during the hours of darkness.
Both these projects will provide substantial benefits to the people of Sevenoaks and North Kent. The Lions Club of Sevenoaks has made significant contributions to both schemes.

Lions Clubs International is the world’s largest service club organisation. It is also respected as one of the most effective. Behind the camaraderie, fun, fund-raising and community service projects of Lions clubs, lies a well-organised structure and established policies and practices.
Each Lions club is founded by a charter and has a constitution and by-laws. It is managed by a team of elected officers, and led by a Club President. Lions Clubs International British Isles & Ireland is known as MD105 – its status as a multiple-district. There are 13 districts in MD105, each of which has an elected District Governor.
Lions Clubs International is a secular, non-political, volunteer membership organisation. All of its administrative costs – at local, national and international level – are covered by modest annual membership fees. This means monies raised by fund-raising are spent supporting good causes.
