Waltham Forest Lions Club CIO works tirelessly to provide solutions for a number of pressing issues affecting our community. Our most significant causes are those that are often brushed aside by most. 

We work with local authorities, health service providers, community groups, local charities and many other organisations to help identify and support those who will benefit from the assistance of Lions Clubs. We are proud to support local charities relating to vulnerable citizens, disability, senior citizens, youth engagement.

Recycle Eye Glasses

Changing Lives - One Pair at a Time

In just about any home, one can find Spectacles that are no longer being used. That same pair of eyeglasses can change another person's life.

Recycled Eyeglasses are distributed to people in need with low income in the developing countries where these will have the greatest impact.

Imagine if you could:

  • Help a child read

  • An adult succeeds in the job

  • Senior maintains their independence

  • Provide people with the opportunities to thrive

Disaster Relief

Lions Respond

Whenever and wherever disaster strikes, Lions are often among the first to offer aid. We were there to respond the Ukraine or Syrian Refugee food & support appeals, even for disasters relief calls in Pakistan, India, Bahamas or Beirut.   


Lions Clubs International Foundation (LCIF) is ready to support their efforts with funding assistance through global disaster relief programs and clubs.

When natural disasters strike LCIF offer help with a disaster grant, for communities devastated by hurricanes, floods, fires and other major events. As a Lions Club, we are proud to support our foundation LCIF.

Hunger Project

Supporting Local Food Banks

FOOD BANK was run sucessfully during Covid19 lock down, a project of the club delivering food parcels at door step. Lions serve to improve human flourishing. We see how the global hunger and nutrition crisis bears upon our local communities, and believe true community improvement depends on the thriving of its members.


We continue to serve  local community by supporting Local Food Banks, it is just the cause and reason for ways to help those in need. Some special cases we still deliver food parcels

Our mission is simple:

“no one should sleep with an empty stomach”
