WORTHING LIONS CLUB CELEBRATES A CENTURY OF SERVICE AT BUCKINGHAM PALACE
The Countess of Wessex G.C.V.O. as Patron of Lions Clubs of the British Isles held a royal reception at Buckingham Palace on Wednesday 28th February to celebrate a “Century of Service!. Her Royal Highness has been Lions Patron since 2004
John Hollington, President of Worthing Lions joined in the 100th Birthday celebrations with hundreds of volunteers who came together with the organisation’s partners for this special occasion.
Lion Phil Nathan MBE, Chair of the Centenary celebrations for Lions Club of the British Isles said “Let me begin by saying that during our first century of service Lions Clubs have touched millions of lives of people who have needed us. 100 years of service to the community is a remarkable achievement, made possible by the selfless actions of many thousands of individual men and women, each of whom has sought to make the world a better place. As we enter our 2nd century the cry for help from those in need will most certainly become louder and we, as volunteers, are ready to show as Lions, We Care.
Lions Clubs International focus, through it’s Lions and Leos members, upon major projects that address diabetes, youth, the environment, hunger relief, childhood cancer and sight issues affecting communities throughout the world. Many will remember the devastation the floods caused Lewes in 2000. That town was helped by a substantial donation from Lions International HQ.
Lions first came to the British Isles shortly after the end of WW2. Worthing Lions Club is one of the oldest in the British Isles, having been chartered 65 years ago in 1953 and during that time has raised many hundreds of thousands of pounds for our own local community as well as giving to Lions Clubs International projects. Worthing Lions is perhaps best known in recent years for their Seafront Festival held during the last weekend of July and their spectacular November 5th Fireworks Celebrations. We are some 40 ordinary men and women, all of whom have one object. To help others. We Serve!
