The First Miskolc Lions Club was established after the changing of the regime in the early 1990s, as one of the first Lions Clubs in Central Europe. Our sponsor club is the Finnish Vammala Lions Club. Our community is unique, as only gentlemen form its membership since 1991.

The number of our members is continuously over 20 people, serving the needy in Miskolc.

As a result of a conscious renewal process, the First Miskolc Club has delegated Mr Zsolt ISTVÁN, - one of the youngest Hungarian in the history of Lions Clubs in Hungary - to become the governor in the federal work.


The press functions and the 2nd vice governor are also carried out by our club members. Our community has already received several awards. In 2009, the city of Miskolc bestowed our organization "For the support of Civilians". In 2010 and in 2015 we earned the “Lions Club of the Year” and in 2014 the “Best Lions Club in Eastern Hungary”.



In line with the Lions tradition, we participated in the formation of several Hungarian Lions Clubs as sponsors. Our Goodwill policy is to only support such goals, which help communities. In the past 24 years our Club participated in the implementation of more than one hundred Goodwill Events.
Some important activities and events:

  • Christmas gifts for visually impaired children, 
  • Purchasing respiratory equipment for the emergency vehicle of prematurely born children, 
  • Donation for schools of West-Africa (Gambia),
  • Screening day for the visually impaired, 
  • Support the training of guide dogs,
  • Acquisition computers and software for the visually impaired,
  • Installation of traffic lights with sound signalling device,
  • Supporting school / kindergarten of Down syndrome and autistic children, 
  • Joint program for schools in hospitals

One of our most well-known programs, "Grape harvesting for the visually impaired" was organized in the fall of 2013 for the first time, where we had the opportunity to spend a day of grape harvesting with our visually impaired friends. (Click on the photo for the article of the event!)





Furthermore, our club members provide own contributions too, such as charity concerts, events, goodwill events at Advent, private donations by companies to help the needy.

Next year, the First Miskolc Lions Club will celebrate its 25th anniversary of charter night for which event we are preparing with special festive and goodwill programs.
