Lions celebrate with a worldwide relay lunch

19:02, Mar 31 2014

New Zealanders will be the first club members in the world to start the Lions World Lunch Relay on Friday.

As Lions clubs around the world host lunch events at noon in different international time zones, the lunch relay will move from time zone to time zone around the world.

Participating clubs, including Temuka, will schedule a lunch for their family and friends to share to celebrate the value of service.

Lions Clubs International is the largest service club organisation in the world. Its 1.35 million members in more than 46,000 clubs are serving communities in 208 countries and geographical areas around the globe.

Since 1917, Lions clubs have aided the blind and visually impaired, championed youth initiatives and strengthened local communities through hands-on service and humanitarian projects.

Geraldine and Districts Lioness Club is also taking part in the event. They will meet at Verde in Geraldine and have invited Lions Club members to join them.
