London-Hendon Lions Club is part of Lions Clubs International, the world's largest service organisation which was formed in 1917 in the USA. Growth has been significant and there are now over 1.35 million members in over 195 countries with more than 45,000 clubs. Our motto is “We Serve”
We currently have 20 members and meet once a month to discuss current and future service projects and fund-raising events for those worthy causes including helping victims caught up in natural disasters and helping the elderly and disadvantaged children. Our aim is to build an environment of true community spirit and togetherness which enables us to help those less fortunate than ourselves. We help where help is needed, it could be in our own communities or around the world.
We welcome any comments, suggestions or feedback you may have either on this website or on our club’s activities. Please contact me or any of the club officers to find out more about the work of the Lions or to join us as a member to lessen our burden. We really could do with some more hands to serve those less fortunate than ourselves.
You can contact me or any of the Club officials.
Welcome to the Lions Club of London - Hendon website. The information on this website is designed to show the outside world who we are, what we do and our wider role in the local and international community, as well as allow fellow club members and other Lions to be kept updated with the latest projects and events being undertaken by the Club.
Our Club is part of the world's largest network of voluntary service organisations, Lions Clubs International, which has as its prime objective to create and foster a spirit of understanding among the peoples of the world. Lions Clubs take an active interest in the civic, cultural, social and moral welfare of their communities and promote the principles of good government and good citizenship. The money raised by the Lions is used principally to help people in the local community, but also, in line with the Lions’ worldwide perspective, to help those in need in other countries, particularly the Third World.
We welcome interest from anybody who wants to know more about Lionism, simply wants more information, would like to join us or indeed offer their help. We would be delighted to welcome you to one of our regular monthly meetings (held on the second Monday of each month). Click here to contact one of our club officials.
LCLH Present Moorfields Eye Charity With Cheque
During 2011-2012 Lions Club of London Hendon collected funds for its chosen charity Moorfields Eye Charity. Moorfields Eye Charity representatives were invited to attend the August 2012 monthly business meeting on the 13th August 2012 to collect a cheque for £4001.
2 representatives from the Charity attended the meeting and the presentation was made in front of all the Club members.
LCLH have subsequently been informed that the money was used towards the purchase of an Optical Coherence Tomography (OPT) device. To quote “Optical coherence tomography (OCT) is an emerging technology for performing high-resolution cross-sectional imaging. OCT is analogous to ultrasound imaging, except that it uses light instead of sound. OCT can provide cross-sectional images of tissue structure on the micron scale in situ and in real time. Using OCT in combination with catheters and endoscopes enables high-resolution intraluminal imaging of organ systems.”
LCLH Donates To The British Heart Foundation
During the October business meeting held on the 8th October 2012, LCLH presented a cheque for £3025 to the British Heart Foundation. The money was raised in memory of the tragic death of the Late Lion Sunil Patel due to a heart attack. He was a Charter Founder member of the Club. (See News/Social for more details)
Also present at the meeting were members of Late Lion Sunil’s immediate family

Each year there are over 200,000 patient visits to the hospital, most are referred from other hospitals throughout the UK and Overseas. There are more than 50 different clinical specialties at GOSH. The hospital is at the forefront of paediatric training in the UK, training more children?s nurses than any other hospital.
GOSH’s mission is to provide world-class clinical care and training, pioneering new research and treatments in partnership with others for the benefit of children in the UK and worldwide.
