Kindness In Action

The Benefits of Being a Lion

When caring people join together, roll up their sleeves and take action to make their community better, it’s a beautiful thing—and an incredible feeling for everyone involved. That’s Lions. Being a Lion is about leading by example, building relationships and improving the world through kindness. It’s 1.4 million caring men and women serving together so they can make a lasting impact and change more lives.

When you become a Lion, you become part of a global network of volunteers working together to make a difference. Here are just a few of the great benefits you can expect.

Home: About Us


On April 16, 1993, the Lions Club of Tropical Gardens (LCTG) was sanctioned as duly formed by Lions International, and on May 8, 1993, 30 ladies were inducted with Lion Patricia McField (a past president of the Leo Club of Grand Cayman) chosen to be its charter president. 


The Lions Club of Tropical Gardens  took up the challenge and began its work in the community, making regular visits to the elderly at home and at the Pines Retirement Home, assisting with many projects within the primary and high schools, the Lighthouse School for the Handicapped, and the Young Parents Program, counseling at the Fairbanks Prison (women’s prison).  It also adopted Lions International Sight Program, bringing awareness of various diseases to the public (Lupus, Diabetes Osteoporosis, etc). 


The Tropical Gardens Club is best known though for its Breast Cancer awareness campaign in October each year when it conducts awareness meetings in each district on Grand Cayman and Cayman Brac and partners with the Health Services Authority (George Town Hospital) in hosting breast cancer clinics.  Doctors, pharmacists and other medical professionals address breast cancer issues and highlight new developments and treatment of the disease.  Literature is provided and free mammogram vouchers are given out to women age 40 and older, and to younger women who have a family history of Breast Cancer.

Together We Serve

Empowering Our service

Every journey begins with a single step. One act of service, one encouraging word, one gift of generosity is often all it takes to bring hope where it’s needed most.

Over the last 100 years, the kindness of Lions and Leos has multiplied across borders, oceans, and continents. With over 1.4 million members, we now have an opportunity to truly change our world.

That’s why we’re uniting our global service around five areas of need. These Global Causes present significant challenges to humanity, and we believe it’s our turn to meet them.
