Lions Club of Rye
Lions is an international non-political service organisation, and is the largest of its kind in Australia.
Lions Clubs foster leadership and business skills in their members, and also provide networking opportunities and the chance to make lifelong friendships in your local area.
Lions assist with local community fundraising for special causes and helps build local parks, community venues, and sporting centres. In addition to community service, Lions Australia has a history of providing natural disaster and emergency relief, as well as supporting medical research.
Lions Australia was involved in the development of the bionic ear and the cervical cancer vaccine, and currently provides funding for research initiatives involving diabetes and autism.
Membership is open to all people in the community. Members can either provide service or raise money for their community. 100% of funds donated by the public through fundraising are directed to the project for which they are intended.
