Southend West MP speaks at Lions Day with the United Nations

On Tuesday 10th March, Sir David Amess spoke at Lions Day with the United Nations in Parliament as the President of The Palace of Westminster Lions Club.

Lions Clubs International, which the Palace of Westminster Lions Club is part of, is a global organisation that empowers volunteers to service their communities, encourage peace and meet humanitarian needs. Part of the responsibility of the Palace of Westminster Lions Club is to act as a figurehead for the rest of the UK and draw attention to the achievements of the Lions UK.

The annual Lions Day with the United Nations event celebrates the partnership between Lions Clubs International and the United Nations. Lions Clubs International supports the United Nations’ ideal of world peace and this event encourages Lions to support and promote the partnership and the United Nations’ humanitarian objectives. 

After the event, Sir David said “I am proud to be the President of the Palace of Westminster Lions Club and be a part of the work we, and Lions Clubs International, are doing to support the United Nations’ projects by delivering humanitarian aid and world peace. The Lions Day event this year was a great showcase of how much work we have done to achieve this in the UK.”
