London Central
Lions Club

About

The London Central Lions Club, the third oldest Lions Club in Canada, was formed in May 1921. Our membership includes men and women from all ages and walks of life; people just like you. The main thread that binds us together is that we all want to do our part to help others and to make our community stronger.

Lions’ projects in London have extended far beyond our core mission as champions of the blind and hearing impaired over the years. This is a partial list of some of our community highlights.

  • Owned and operated the Springbank Railway miniature train
  • Purchased the first defibrillators for the London Fire Department
  • Built and sponsor a building at the Children’s Safety Village
  • Purchased and donated over 20,000 pairs of glasses for needy school children
  • Support an annual bowling tournament for the blind
  • Support kids summer camp at Lake Joseph in Muskoka
  • Purchased several guide dogs for London residents
  • We support hockey programs, the Food Bank and shelters for under privileged children

London Central Lions Club Special Community Needs Committee

London Central Lions Club regularly supports special community needs with financial contributions to charitable institutions such as Mission Services, The Salvation Army, Canadian Diabetes Association and London Food Bank. At the inception of the Children’s Safety Village our club erected a Lions clubhouse. We continue to support the Village with an annual barbeque and regular maintenance of the clubhouse.

To assist children with special needs London Central gives to the George Bray Society and Sari Therapeutic Riding. For many years members of our club have taken important leadership roles in the Lions Effective Speaking Program conducted annually for school children of all ages.

As “knights for the blind” our club’s Community Needs budget of course includes financial support for the local charity Eyes Right and the Michigan base organization Leader Dog USA. Ten years ago Lions from London Central helped found the Purina Walk for Dog Guides in London. The annual Walk is still an important project for London Central Lions. Large financial contributions are made to Lions Foundation of Canada to assist with the operations of Dog Guides of Canada in Oakville and Breslau, Ontario.  

London Central Lions Club maintains a local bowling league for blind bowlers. We also always give annually to the operations of the CNIB camp at Lake Joseph and the Kidney Foundation’s Camp Dorset.
