Lions hold fundraising concert with Norwegian Chamber Choir

After the success of the first major fundraising event organised by the Lions Clube de Lagos, the club is now hoping to increase its membership in order to “serve more people in need”.

On November 9, a performance by the Norwegian Chamber Choir, on tour in the Algarve, helped raise €1,500 for the LC de Lagos charity fund.

The choir sang Scandinavian and international songs to an audience of more than 90 guests, among them the Norwegian Consul in the Algarve Francisco Bivar Weinholtz, at the Clube Artístico Lacobrigence in Lagos. The audience enjoyed an evening of choir and solo performances, and even rewarded the singers with a standing ovation.

Lions Clube de Lagos is gradually growing in numbers. “More members means we can provide more service to those who need us most. Each member serves 70 people on average,” said Theo de Jager from LC de Lagos.

Internationally, Lions surpassed the 1.4 million member mark at the end of October, the largest number ever.

“To keep this momentum going and to help reach our goals, every member is encouraged to think about someone they know who shares our desire to help people and then invite them to join us,” he said.
