Our club is part of the Lions Clubs International
- a truly global service organisation with over 1.3 million members in
205 countries. We are a group of service-minded individuals working to
help our community. Our motto is "We Serve" and we are proud to
recognise ourselves as "ordinary people who achieve amazing things".
The main purpose of the Basildon and Wickford Lions Club is to
support our community, sometimes through financial help, sometimes by
'rolling our sleeves up', and sometimes a bit of both. We organise
events to raise funds to support these community services projects.
Though all of our service and fund raising activities are enjoyable in
their own right, we also take time out just to have fun together.

LIONS CLUBS INTERNATIONAL ANNUAL PEACEPOSTER COMPETITION
The Lions Clubs International (LCI) organisation runs an annual 'Peace
Poster' Contest, and schools and other youth groups throughout the
world are invited to enter through the local Lions Club. The Basildon
& Wickford Lions Club is pleased to invite local schools and youth
groups to enter.
The contest is judged on a geographical hierarchical basis – firstly for each individual participating school, then 'District',
then national, and finally at International level. Our Lions District covers the East Anglia area, including Essex, Suffolk,
Norfolk, and Cambridgeshire. Our District includes a separate category for Special Schools.
This competition gives an opportunity to encourage the young people
in our local community to think about the importance of world peace,
tolerance, and international understanding, and it encourages these
young people to share their unique visions with the world, through

general Charity funds.
