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.
When I became a Godiva Lions member 20 years ago, my goal was to make a difference no matter how big or small. With 36 members now and ever-growing, we are enthusiastic and energetic in the charitable work that we do.
I take it as an honour to be chosen as t Godiva President for 2018-2019. While each club president brings a unique perspective and expertise to Godiva Lions, there has and always will be a single constant that unites us all as Lions: SERVICE
With this as a guide, each president is committed to helping their club increase their service and as a result their impact on our local and global communities. Every day, we must tell ourselves as well as others, it is great to be a Lion.

I would like to thank all our members for their hard work over the years. I hope this year will be fun for everyone. I would also like to take this opportunity to thank the community for your continued support.
