Our Motley Crew 2016.
Welcome to the Darwin Nightcliff Lions Club in Australia
Lions is a non-political, non-religious, not-for-profit organization, aimed at raising money for charities and community members in need.
Schools and organizations can apply to Lions for assistance in the form of donations or people-power, so Lions club members can find themselves riding on the back of a Hog for SIDS for Kids or serving at a Vinnie’s Food Van.
“It’s all about helping people”, says Ellie, a member for 4 yrs, “and being part of the community.” Lions is guided by the values of democracy and egalitarianism, with a mission “to create and foster a spirit of understanding among all people for humanitarian needs.” There are clubs in Lichfield, Palmerston, Casuarina and Nightcliff, with members of all ages, involved in all sorts of activities, but sharing the same belief: “to build up and not destroy.”
The club welcomes new members to help us provide a unique alternative to service club membership.
We are a no-fuss club for busy, working people.
We have a few, interesting projects on the boil, and in keeping with the club ethic, they are humanitarian, fun and manageable.
We would love for you to join us if you have a little spare time, and an interest in helping your community.
