Hundreds of volunteers to gather in the Top End for National Volunteers Week 2024

Lions Australia

Community service has never been more important. Hundreds of volunteers will come together in Darwin during National Volunteer Week for the Lions Australia National Convention. National Volunteer Week is held from 20–26 May. The Lions National Convention will be held between 24–27 May. Some Lions are on a mission to cure childhood cancer and diabetes, others are committed to assisting those impacted by drought and floods, and many are simply working together to help people in need in their local community. One thing all Lions have in common is together they are making an incredible difference. Lions Clubs promote youth and provide community service, medical research, and disaster relief. Since the first club was formed in Lismore in 1947, Lions Australia has grown to be the largest service club organisation in Australia, with over 25,000 volunteers. Now, Lions Australia has set a goal of 30,000 members by 2030 and 50,000 members by 2050.
