Internationally, the club is one of 43,300 clubs Worldwide in 182 countries that make up Lions Club International, which is the largest service organisation in the World and has the motto “We Serve”.
The club welcomes Men and Women of all ages and lives up to its motto by fund raising and distributing approximately £20,000 per annum to good causes within the Maidstone area. It is estimated that in today’s money the club has distributed around one million pounds since its inception.
The club supports the work of the Lions Club International Foundation which donates millions of pounds each year direct to local Lions Clubs in areas affected by disasters.
