Lions Club of Coventry Godiva is part of the International Association of Lions Clubs and is the largest service organisation in the world with a membership of over 1.3 million spread over 200 countries.
Our club was formed in May 1994 by a group of 20 members from Business and Professional backgrounds with the single objective of getting together and raising funds for the needy in our communities both at local and international levels. We are a registered Charity and all the Godiva Lions members give their time on voluntary basis.
Being part of the world Lions family, and a network of clubs throughout the globe, Lions are always first to help the many destitute and the needy people when natural disasters or calamities fall upon them.
In the past 22 years, the club has gone from strength to strength, and is one of the most active and successful in the Lions District 105M.
Since the formation of our club, we have been able to make many donations towards appeals for assistance that we receive regularly from all sections of the Community, both in the UK and abroad, whether it is to assist the needs of children, the sick, the elderly, the homeless or aiding those who have suffered from major disasters that happen around the world.
Where There's a NEED, There's a LION
Whenever a Lions club gets together, problems get smaller. And communities get better. That's because we help where help is needed – in our own communities and around the world – with unmatched integrity and energy.
The World's Largest Service Club Organization
Our 46,000 clubs and 1.4+ million members make us the world's largest service club organization. We're also one of the most effective. Our members do whatever is needed to help their local communities. Everywhere we work, we make friends. With children who need eyeglasses, with seniors who don’t have enough to eat and with people we may never meet.
