Lions Club Varna was established in 1999 when Lionism in Bulgaria was at its dawn. Together with the other fellow clubs we have been working hard to raise the public awareness regarding voluntary service and charity work in all its forms. Notably, due to our commitment to the community, Lions Club Varna has earned the love and respect of both the City Council and the ordinary people. As a result the City Council has displayed our insignia on the front of its building.
